US PRESSWIRE

The Daily Links bring you the best Red Sox and baseball related story from across the internet. Today, we look at the Rays-Royals mega-deal, the landscape of free agency in baseball, and Koji Uehara.

The biggest news of the weekend in baseball waited until just before midnight struck and the weekend ended, when the Rays traded James Shields, Wade Davis, a player to be named later and cash for Wil Myers, Jake Odorizzi, Mike Montgomery, and Patrick Leonard. The Rays continue to Ray and the Royals continue to Royal. (Dave Cameron; Fangraphs)

As for the Red Sox, their most recent move was signing Shane Victorino. Brian MacPherson talks about how this deal shows the changes in the landscape of the game. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Even with all of the big moves being made in baseball nowadays, as the hot stove starts to heat up, the market for Josh Hamilton is still as confusing as ever. Alex Speier reevaluates the risk Hamilton carries. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Zack Greinke signed a huge six-year, $147 million contract over the weekend. It's a massive deal for a pitcher that should set the entire starting pitching market. (Sam Miller; Baseball Prospectus) ($$$$)

The Indians also made a much more low-key move yesterday, adding Mark Reynolds to play first base. There are strong indications that this means Kevin Youkilis could end up in Pinstripes. (Matt Snyder; CBS' Eye on Baseball)

Speaking of the possibility of Youkilis signing with New York, Robinson Cano says he'd have no problem with the move. (Peter Abraham; Boston.com)

Heading into the 2013 season, Boston will be looking for big production from David Ortiz. Unfortunately, he's still not feeling 100% after his injury last season. (Ron Chimelis; Masslive.com)

With the signing of Koje Uehara, the Red Sox will have some decisions to make regarding their bullpen. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)
