FORT MYERS, Fla. — Pablo looks good for Pablo.

Pablo Sandoval has lost weight. Some estimates have him down 30 pounds.

He’s trying. Food is hard to push aside. It’s his vice. It’s probably a vice for many of us, but an athlete earning $17.6 million a season has to have discipline.

Sandoval showed up at JetBlue Park Thursday well ahead of the Feb. 17 reporting date for Red Sox positional players. He passed on a chance to play for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic because he thought it important to be in this camp for six or seven weeks and re-prove himself.

Throughout the winter, Sandoval posted photos of himself on Instagram and Facebook working out or just to show the baseball world that he was thinner and in shape. Those photos didn’t lie.

He made it through the holidays without ballooning up again. For me, that was the biggie in terms of off-season grading. He's doing and saying the right things, I'll give him that.

Would be nice if he could even come close to living up to his contract. I have hope.

more than that, if you throw in when the Yawkeys FINALLY RELINQUISHED control to FSG, add in NESN's majority ownership, I believe, at that time was 600M, for both.

With the talent around him, I'd be ecstatic with;

140 GP

.270

15 HR

65 RBI

.340 OBP

.370 SLG

And average to slightly above average defense.

He did this in SF after he lost his job due to being out of shape as well. It turned out to be a short term thing, which is why SF wanted a weight clause in his contract when he left them and signed with the Sox. If I were the Sox, I take advantage of the weight loss to get his value up early this season and then trade him for anything as soon as they can. Because it's a matter of time before he packs it back on again. It's what he does.

There is significant concern inside the Cardinals' organization that Alex Reyes, their star pitching prospect, needs Tommy John surgery.

After changing Sox, Chris Sale must find new comfort zone

Quote:
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- There's no denying Chris Sale is entering a new phase of his career this season, but it isn't for the reason you would think. For the first time as a big league pitcher, Sale won't be working with Don Cooper. Cooper, 60, has been the Chicago White Sox's pitching coach since 2002, which means he has overseen each of the 17,271 pitches Sale has thrown since his major league debut in 2010. He helped ease Sale's transition from the bullpen to the starting rotation in 2012, coaxed the ace lefty through five All-Star seasons and even convinced him to change his style of pitching last year. Because Sale spent only one month in the minors after being drafted in 2010, Cooper is practically the only coach he's ever had as a professional. When Sale gets into a jam on the mound, Cooper's voice usually is the one he hears in his head. They grew so close over the years that they practically finished one another's sentences. "Coop knows me better than I know myself," Sale said Tuesday.

Red Sox ownership give the annual State of the Sox report.

Of note Henry and Werner have no interest in selling and they expect Fenway Park to last another 30 to 50 years.

http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/re...RnI/story.html

Quote:
Henry, 67, finds the Red Sox a worthwhile experience even after all this time.

“We really are focused on that fourth ring, as much as were focused on the first,” he said. “Anything short of that is, I think we would say, is a limited success.

“We talk about how long we can do this, not when we should stop.”

For Werner, 66, there is no horizon in his view.

“We hope to be healthy and focused for a long, long time,” he said. “We know that nothing is forever. Hopefully we’ll be having these conversations for 10 or 15 more years.

Fenway Park isn’t going anywhere, either. Henry said ownership doesn’t feel a need to even consider a new stadium.

“It’s been sort of built to last,” he said. “Built to last for the next at least 30 years, if not 50 years. I don’t think we’ll see a lot of changes.”

What could change is the area around Fenway. The Red Sox own several properties in the neighborhood that could be used for team-related purposes.

“I think you’ll see probably more changes outside the ballpark,” said Henry, who also owns the Globe. “Substantive, big changes.”
Looks like I will be spared the trauma of seeing Fenway torn down like the old Garden.

Boggs swing was made for softball - I could see him waiting and going the other way with carry until the extra OF was positioned there - then Wade would hit singles up the middle

I can't remember the name of the club in Saugus to the left of the dinosaur mini golf but I remember seeing Wade there and I believe those stories- damn what was the name of that place - had the chandelier
