Curt looks in much better shape than he did at this time last year. This is great news. We're gonna need him to come through for us if we have a chance this season. Timline, Wake, and Schilling all reported to Fort Myers early. Coco Crisp, Kevin Youkilis and Tony Graffanino are among the position players who have reported early. David Wells has technically reported in the sense that he is within the state of Florida according to Red Sox GM Theo Epstein. Wells, however, is not at the Red Sox facility in Fort Myers, however. In 12 days, the Red Sox will begin their Spring Training schedule against their Mayor's Cup Rival, the Minnesota Twins who also play in Fort Myers. The Red Sox first home ST games will be a split-squad doubleheader against Boston College and Northeastern on March 3rd. Nine of the Red Sox Spring games will be on NESN, and a few will even be on ESPN or ESPN 2. I'm pretty sure WEEI will broadcast most Spring Training games.
