Daily Red Sox Links: Jackie Bradley, Jon Lester, Steven Wright

Jared Wickerham

Today's links include stories on the Red Sox's farm system, the Blue Jays chances next year, and one last look at the Hall of Fame.

The thing the Red Sox could use more than anything else is a young, proven pitcher to sit at the top of their rotation. Unfortunately, other team's aren't likely to give something like that up. Because of this, the Red Sox are left to try and develop their own. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Steven Wright throws a knuckleball, which I think we all can agree is pretty neat. He is also pushing for a roster spot, and some big league action in 2013. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

While everyone is hoping the major-league team can compete this year, most of us will also have a keen eye on the minor-league system. Courtesy of the guys from Sox Prospects, here are the projected lineups for the Red Sox's minor-league affiliates. (Mike Andrews; ESPNBoston)

During this Hall of Fame season, a lot of the talk was about why Jack Morris did or didn't deserve election. Matt Hunter thinks we're worrying about the wrong things. (Matt Hunter; Beyond the Boxscore)

Jackie Bradley Jr. is this particular writer's favorite of the Red Sox's prospects, and he is also ready to take the next step forward on his trip to the majors. (Peter Abraham; Boston.com)

Grant Brisbee presents four players that he sees improving in 2013. (Grant Brisbee; Baseball Nation)

John Tomase isn't ready to crown the Blue Jays, even after their overly-active offseason. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

Jeff Sullivan, as only he can, goes over the worst called strikes from the 2012 season. (Jeff Sullivan; Fangraphs)
