Red Sox Blog, but other Boston Sports Welcome!
When I read this article yesterday I wondered why the ink was wasted printing it. Of course the team is new to each other. That's what Spring Training is for, to become one, a formidable force this year. FoxSports picks the Sox first in the AL East. Nice.
On the subject of team chemistry:"Mariano Rivera hasn't ruled out pitching beyond his current contract. The 36-year-old Yankees closer is in the final season of a $21 million, two-year extension. He has a $10.5 million option for 2007. ''We'll see what happens," Rivera said. ''Hopefully this year I'll do a good job. I don't want to go ahead." "Contrast this to Gary Sheffield's recent (forever) antics. And for some perspective, sheffield has made almost double ($119MM) in his career than rivera ($63.5MM).But back to Maz, this article is one of his least offensive of the offseason. that is an interesting picture....
An interesting note out of the AJC (http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/shared-blogs/ajc/braves/entries/2006/02/24/back_woes_bench.html)Edgar was held out of a workout on friday dues to back soreness. Sure its early, but this one will warrant monitoring this season. the quote:In other news Friday, new shortstop Edgar Renteria was held out of the workout with a sore back after jumping out of the way of a ball in the batting cage Thursday. Bobby Cox said he might rest him again Saturday, but said it’s not a big deal and he just wants to make sure Renteria doesn’t develop a nagging injury.
