Good Morning from Fort Myers – this should be welcome news to all the good folks back in New England – it is 55 degrees here at 9AM! Now that you have finished chuckling, let me tell you that it is a busy day here at the Sox camp. Pitchers and catchers are already out on the field going through their usual drills. The position players are all having an individual meeting with manager Terry Francona. He will tell each player what is expected of him this spring and into this season. At the same time all players are undergoing physical exams this morning and this afternoon they will have their conditioning run and drills – much the same as the pitchers and catchers last Friday.
Many members of the media are absent from camp, on their way to Tampa for the Alex Rodriguez press conference this afternoon.
