Rob Carr

Today's edition includes stories on David Ortiz's contract (go figure), Will Middlebrooks' 2014 redemption, and impressions of Henry Owens.

Alex Speier explains why the Red Sox are completely open to giving David Ortiz the extension that he desires. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Ortiz yearns for that extension, but something that he doesn't desire is friendship. He needs haters, because they are his motivators. (Ron Chimelis; MassLive.com)

Will Middlebrooks wants to redeem himself for what was a disappointing sophomore season in 2013. (Joe McDonald; ESPNBoston.com)

Normalcy has eluded John Lackey since he joining Boston in 2009. This year, he's happy to have a normal spring training. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) ($$$ - if you've read more than 15 ProJo articles in a month...)

It's a bit too early to talk about prospects wowing people this spring, but David Ross was impressed with left-handed prospect Henry Owens during their bullpen session. (Meredith Perri; WEEI.com)

Daniel Nava is not going to alter his approach to bat leadoff. (Jason Mastrodonato; MassLive.com)

A Red Sox minor leaguer was suspended 50 games on Thursday for PED use. (Jared Carrabis; SoxSpace)
