• Gomes says Red Sox beards are coming off

    Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes, who along with first baseman Mike Napoli had the thickest beards and helped perpetuate the phenomenon in the clubhouse, said Wednesday night he was shaving his before spring training. "No, I don't think we can do the beards again," Ross said in an interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI.

Both teams need to be championship-caliber to have anything approaching the best of the Torre-Francona years, and for now the onus is more on the Yankees to prove they spent their money wisely this winter.
