10:23 AM ET 03.31 | David Ortiz will travel to New York with the Red Sox to continue the care he's receiving on his heel. He's expected to return to Fort Myers after that with an eye on getting live at-bats in games "the week of April 8," John Farrell said. "That's the general time frame right now.??? Stephen Drew will not travel with the Red Sox to New York because he might be even closer to getting into extended-spring training games than Ortiz is. Drew has participated fully in baseball activities on the field this week, and his appearance in a game is "getting closer," Farrell said. The last step for Drew will be clearing the concussion protocol laid out by Major League Baseball.

A week away from getting live at-bats in Fort Myers is a long way from getting back to Boston. He hasn't done anything yet.

I still cannot believe the Red Sox were dumb enough to hand the Big PED another $26 million. And $9.3 million to Drew. Fools.

The big PED. You should be nominated for a breaking news story. Can't you come up with something original? Or at least entertaining. Christ, what a loser.

I heard he couldnt schedule a pedicure appointment until thursday so he'll be out until at least then. It's been reported by a few sources that he's looking to get a haircut before returning to the lineup too, so we'll just have to play it by ear.
