FORT MYERS, Fla. - John Henry probably shouldn’t have said it so openly and honestly because Carl Crawford reacted to the Red Sox owner’s offseason comments that he did not favor signing him with hurt and disappointment yesterday.
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Jon Lester is a two-time All-Star, a World Series champion, and has a no-hitter on his résumé. By any measure, he is one of the best starting pitchers in the game.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The White Sox are counting on rebound seasons from Adam Dunn, Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham in their quest to challenge for the American League Central title despite slim odds.
