Sandoval, Ramirez look forward to spring

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- As snow fell upon the Foxwoods Resort Casino on Saturday, where the Boston Red Sox held their Baseball Winter Weekend event, two of the team's newest acquisitions only had spring on their minds. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval and left fielder Hanley Ramirez haven’t often dealt with this type of weather. Ramirez, a native of the Dominican Republic, endured winter-like conditions in his time with the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs as a Red Sox prospect, but that was nearly a decade ago.
