Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Daily Links bring you the best Red Sox and baseball related stories from across the internet. Today's edition includes stories on Dustin Pedroia, the team's farm system, and the ongoing managerial search.

There weren't a lot of bright spots on this Red Sox team towards the end of the 2012 season. However, Dustin Pedroia played through an injury and performed admirably. Was it the right decision though? (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

One position that will likely garner some attention this offseason will be shortstop. Brandon Stewart looks at some possible in-house options. (Brandon Stewart; Firebrand of the AL)

While the big-league team struggled this past season, the minor league system had a very encouraging year. Here's a look at some of the names to watch for in 2013. (Mike Andrews; ESPN Boston)

There are still four teams playing baseball, one of them being the Giants. They have a chance to reinstate Melky Cabrera for the NLCS, but they decided against it. (Mike Ferrin; Baseball Prospectus)

Another big storyline of this postseason was the Nationals being eliminated in the NLDS. This led to the shutdown of Stephen Strasburg to be the talk of the league once again. In 2007, the Red Sox faced a similar situation. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

One of the problems that arose for the Red Sox this year was the failed transition for Daniel Bard moving from the bullpen to the rotation. Other relievers have had better success in that transition, though. (Alex Kienholz; Beyond the Boxscore)

The first order of business for Boston this winter is to find a new manager. One of their candidates from last offseason is still interested in the position. (Sean McAdam; CSN New England)

The Sox had a horrible 2012, as everyone could admit to. However, was it the worst in all of baseball. (Michael Clair; Platoon Advantage)
