BASEBALL KNIGHTS OF THE ROUNDTABLE:
Highlights from Gammons event that included Theo, Jed, Ben, J.P..
If Sox Change, Theo's Game: Former GM hints at return:
"I'd be going about it pretty much exactly the same way Hoyer and Cherington have."
-Cherington and Hoyer again voiced high praise for Alex Cora as a "comfortable" choice to be the Opening Day shortstop, citing his formidable field intelligence.
-Cherington said Dustin Pedroia will get a look at shortstop during spring training
-Left-handed starter prospect Jon Lester and right-handed reliever Craig Hansen will both begin the season in Pawtucket
"I don't think the signing of (first baseman) J.T. Snow shows that we think any less of Kevin Youkilis - he's going to get chances to play a lot."
-1/2 A G.M. Ben
