There is a little bit of news out of Red Sox Nation on this cold, wintry day here in New England.
Daisuke Matsuzaka is currently working out in Southern California and will be holding a press conference at 5:30 EST. If I find anything after the press conference is held, I will be sure to update everyone.
Theo Epstein pulled another fast one on the media of Boston. Seems our beloved General Manager is a married man. A few years back, he snuck out of the Red Sox offices in a gorilla suit. Well this time, he managed to keep his marriage to Marie Whitney a secret. It was first reported that Epstein and Whitney got married on Coney Island at the original Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand. This report was not true. Epstein’s father, Leslie, confirmed the nuptials to the Boston Globe. He also kept the details of his honeymoon a secret and this could have been the reason for the long delay in getting J.D. Drew deal done.
Manny Delcarmen, whose name recently came up in trade talks again, had this to say about playing for his hometown Red Sox:
â€œI love playing for the Red Sox. The Red Sox are my hometown team. Theyâ€™re the team I rooted for growing up, but it doesnâ€™t bother me that other teams are interested in me. I think it would be worse if you found out that there are teams that donâ€™t have interest in you.â€
