A few links and notes for today.

David Scott has been filling up Scott’s Shots with Spring Training observations. He just might be the most prolific blogger during his time down there, and that’s saying something, considering the efforts of Rob Bradford.

Scott Benson on the Patriots Game Day page has the first in the series of quick draft profiles of players the Patriots might be interested in drafting come April. The first profile is of Purdue LB-DE Anthony Spencer.


Here’s a roundup of the notes columns from today’s papers:

Globe Baseball Notes by Nick Cafardo. (Wells weighs in on Boston)
Herald Baseball Notes by Tony Massarotti. (Lowe gets a high sign)
MetroWest Baseball Notes by Art Davidson. (Seeing Reds)
Standard-Times Baseball Notes by Jon Couture. (AL East’s other three remain just that)

On TV Today

The highlight for Boston fans might be another chance to salivate over Greg Oden. The Celtics, winless thus far on their West coast trip (0-4) continue their march towards a date with the ping-pong balls.
