Good morning from the Fort

By Gordon Edes

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Good morning from the Fort on another ridiculously beautiful day. It's a day for physicals for pitchers and catchers, although Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury could pop in.

Ellsbury and Pedroia flew in on the same plane and Ellsbury tweeted that the plane was struck by lightning, which had to be especially unnerving to Pedroia, who loathes flying.

It's shortly after 9 and John W. Henry just strolled in. So did Bill Lee, for reasons unknown.
