RED SOX SAY THEY HAVEN'T ASKED CITY FOR "DIME" FOR BALLPARK

          The Red Sox "denied" a report that the team is seeking
     $50M or more from the City of Boston to help finance a new
     ballpark, according to Meg Vaillancourt of the BOSTON GLOBE. 
     Red Sox VP/Public Affairs Dick Bresciani: "That is
     absolutely false.  We have not asked the city for a dime. 
     In fact we are still researching and reviewing our options." 
     Bresciani also refused to put a timeline on when the
     franchise may announce its ballpark plan: "We don't have a
     definite date for making any decisions."  Team officials
     told the BOSTON GLOBE that a public announcement could be
     postponed for "several months or more" (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/13).
