Red Sox Notes: Ortiz, Francona, Ellsbury

The Boston Red Sox spring training has been an interesting one to follow, with Bobby Valentine and Ben Cherington now running the show. Let's check out the latest:

  • Red Sox DH David Ortiz spoke with WEEI Radio this morning, and he said he feels like everything that happened in September has been overblown by the media, including him barging in on a Terry Francona press conference.
  • Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona spoke on ESPN Radio about Valentine banning beer in the clubhouse, and he thinks that it is a PR move that had to be made.
  • Joe McDonald from ESPN Boston talks about Jacoby Ellsbury, who had a break out season in 2011. Ellsbury will be a free agent after the 2013 season, and a contract extension seems unlikely.
  • Rob Bradford from WEEI writes about Josh Beckett, who says that he won't change off or on the field even after last season.
