The beat reporters continue to fan out and cover everything. No repetition of profiles today.
Not a lot of time or inclination for much comment, so here's a collection of links, in no particular order.
Dejan Kovacevic catches us up on Mike Johnston.
Kovacevic's notebook describes the horror story that was House's shoulder. DK also confirms Jim Sullivan's report that Mackowiak looks great in the batting cage.
Joe Rutter reports on Freddy Sanchez, who is expected to win Abraham Nunez's old job.
Ed Eagle describes the world according to Bryan Bullington. Eagle addresses the B.J. Upton thing directly.
For the Bradenton Herald, Jim Brockman describes the likely roles of Matt Lawton and Mark Redman.
The AP revisits Albie Lopez and we get more details about Althete's Performance and Mark Verstegen.
Ed Eagle writes that Joe Roa is hurt.
Joe Rutter has a Jack Wilson update.
For the Tribune-Review, Jim Rodenbush writes about McClatchy's liking for NHL owners. McClatchy's name gets misspelled in the headline; I'm sure they'll fix that sooner or later. McClatchy's right that Reggie Sanders was a far better deal for the Bucs than the fat Zero Halliburton case they had to offer Burnitz.
