Kraft: I'll return if new deal is close

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, on a trade mission to Israel with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, said he "personally [believes] it's possible" for the NFL owners and players to agree on a new labor deal before Friday's deadline, and that he "might have to leave [the trip] early" and return to the United States if an agreement between the two sides is close.

"I made a commitment here, so we're going to finish the important things we're doing here," Kraft told reporters while overseas. "[We're] in daily contact by phone. It's unfortunate. We're supposed to be settled by now. That's [why] we planned this trip [for this week]."

Players and owners are meeting this week in Washington in hopes of preventing the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987.

"We're doing everything we can to get a deal consummated," Kraft said. "I personally believe it's possible. ... [The] good...

Lackey on start: 'A good step forward'

FORT MYERS, Fla. – John Lackey spoke to the media following his start vs. the Orioles on Monday. Lackey was in command in his second start of spring training, allowing just a single hit and no runs in his four innings of work against a split-squad Orioles group.

 

"I was happy with fastball location today," said Lackey, who gave up four hits and a run in two innings vs. the Braves in his first start of the spring March 2. "My rotation on my four-seam fastball was nice, nice and true. I still haven't started throwing my cutter yet, but I'll probably be ready to do that next start. So it was a good step forward."

 

Lackey needed only 39 pitches in his four innings. The Sox were expecting Lackey to throw somewhere in the 55-pitch range, so the right-hander threw an extra 16 pitches in the bullpen following the start.

Lackey strong in Sox win

FORT MYERS, Fla. – John Lackey needed just 39 pitches in his four innings of work for the Red Sox in his start vs. the Orioles at City of Palms Park on Monday, a game won by the Sox by a 6-5 final.

 

Lackey allowed a leadoff single in the first inning to Matt Angle before retiring the final 12 batters he faced. He did not walk or strike out a batter in his four innings.

 

Dan Wheeler struggled in relief of Lackey, allowing a pair of runs in an inning. 

 

The Sox offense got going quickly in the first inning, scoring three runs, two coming on a J.D. Drew single off of Chris Tillman. Carl Crawford -- who stole his first base and knocked in his first run of the spring in the win Monday -- and Kevin Youkilis scored on the Drew single. 

 

The Sox would lose that early three-run lead, but would later rally to tie the game in the eighth inning and later win it in the ninth on a...
