Red Sox coverage in today’s Globe

There is a small book of baseball coverage in the Globe today …

Dan Shaughnessy checked out Red Sox camp and found it quiet when compared to past years.

Nick Cafardo looks back on what has been a fine career for Jason Varitek and what happens now.

Amalie Benjamin reports on a very determined Tim Wakefield, who says he will be in the rotation to start the season, even as the Red Sox hedge their bets.

Jacoby Ellsbury is cool with switching from center field to left because he knows that can always change.

Jed Lowrie hopes this is the year he puts his wrist issues in the past. This notebook also has updates on Daisuke Matsuzaka, Casey Kelly, Jose Iglesias, Joe Nelson and Hideki Okajima.


In his weekly baseball notes, Nick checks in with the Yankees as they start defense of their title.
