The Red Sox picked up the $4 million option for pitcher Tim Wakefield. Wakefield turned 40 this season, but will be back for his 13th season with the Red Sox, by far the longest anyone on the 2007 roster will have been with the team.

Trot Nixon, Gabe Kapler, Alex Gonzalez, Mark Loretta, and Doug Mirabelli have filed for free agency.

Early lines out of Vegas have the Patriots favored by 3 points for the upcoming clash with the undefeated Colts.
