Under blue skies and brilliant sunshine the Red Sox pitchers and catchers began their first official workout this morning. At 9:30 the group, led by team captain Jason Varitek, ambled onto the field through a modest gauntlet of Red Sox fans who made the trip the Sox complex. Tim Wakefield was spotted throwing to his new catcher Josh Bard. They were battery mates a few years ago until Bard was dealt to San Diego and Doug Mirabelli was brought back. This time Wakefield is confident it will work out better. Jason Varitek is scheduled to speak soon. We will check back and let you know what he had to say.
