FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The first full-squad workout will take place Monday for the Red Sox and, as tradition calls for, the manager will address the entire organization.
Ordinarily, that would be rather mundane. But given the circumstances of the last month and the fact that this will be Ron Roenicke's inaugural address to the Sox, Monday won't be just any old speech.
"I've thought about it a little bit,'' said Roenicke, who was named interim manager last week. "To be honest, I've been so busy. I haven't had time to think about it like I usually would. I know when I was in Milwaukee, I knew exactly what I was going to say and had plenty of time to prepare for it. Yeah, I've thought about it a little bit, but not like I would have liked to.
"There's some things that I think I should address, about some of the craziness that has happened. I need to address that.''
