Sox pulling out all the stops

Just checked for an update on the winter meetings, not expecting much, and found the Sox had reached preliminary agreements with two talented and high-priced players, outfielder J.D. Drew and shortstop Julio Lugo. If true, this means the Sox payroll will be even higher next year (especially with Drew's five-year, $70 million contract). It'd also mean that Trot Nixon and Alex Gonzalez won't be returning, which is understandable but sad, particularly in Trot's case. I guess even Ray Bourque ended his career somewhere else.

Update, 12/15: Matsuzaka - signed. Drew -- signed. Lugo -- signed. Guess Terry Francona knows what he's getting for Xmas.
