Full House in the Fort

The Red Sox must not have gotten the memo about reporting date. Either that, or they didn’t much care. The complex was full of players on Thursday, some 72 hours before they are required to be in town.

Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, John Lackey, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Kevin Youkilis and Adrian Gonzalez are just some of the players who have already worked out.

The rest of them will be filtering in over these next several days, as another baseball season gets ready to start.

MLB.com will keep you up to date on all things Red Sox throughout the spring and, of course, all summer long.

Here is a synopsis of what you can find on redsox.com today.

Daniel Bard was a bit of a lone ranger last year in setting up Jonathan Papelbon. The hard-throwing righty is thrilled to be surrounded by quality options this year.

As Theo Epstein surveyed the scene, he noted that health — last year’s main annoyance — needs to hold up.

The GM also discussed recent signings, both the conventional and unconventional ones.


I like that we have a number of folks who are raring to get going. That is very encouraging. I am glad that Salty has been working hard, even before Truck Day. Sounds like he’s really motivated. I will be happy to see that hard work pay off on the field! Way to go, guys–stay healthy! GO SOX!

Ian –

The highly successful Red Sox Hot Stove season (plus a miserable New England wintah) has created the most anticipation for the Red Sox 2011 season that I have seen in years.

Barring injures (a well worn-out phrase from 2010), it should be a very fun year watching the Green Monster get SUPAH DENTED from A-Gon and company.

Thanks for keeping us all informed.

Go Sox!!!
