Good morning from Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. — It’s a beautiful morning here (sorry about that, New Englanders) for the third day of pitchers and catchers working out. The position players will take their physicals ahead of the first full-squad workout on Thursday.

Just a hunch that we won’t have too many members of the national media around JetBlue Park today. That Derek Jeter guy is up the road in Tampa discussing his pending retirement.
