Good morning from the Fort

February, 20, 2011
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- My skates are off and the spikes are on for the next couple of weeks, as I join my colleague Gordon Edes at Red Sox spring training.

It’s photo day here at the minor league complex and then the team will participate in a live BP session.

Pitchers Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Tim Wakefield are all throwing. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is working with Beckett and Varitek is catching the veteran knuckleballer.

I’m heading back out to the fields, so check back around noon for updates from manager Terry Francona and Varitek.

This weather sure beats all the snow and cold back home.
