Daily Red Sox Links: Jackie Bradley, Burke Badenhop, Mike Napoli

Darren McCollester

Today's links look at the newly acquired Burke Badenhop, the market for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and an interesting backup plan to fill the hole at catcher.

With the presence of Jackie Bradley and Xander Bogaerts, the Red Sox have the luxury of not needing to go extreme with their spending to replace departing stars. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Can Burke Badenhop be another under-the-radar signing by Ben Cherington that pays huge dividends? (Ron Chimelis; Masslive.com)

On the other end of the Badenhop trade was Luis Ortega, who has been sent to Milwaukee's organization. (James Dunne; Sox Prospects)

The Red Sox still have a few holes that need to be filled, and Mike Napoli should remain the top priority for them. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

Now that Brian McCann has signed with New York, what does the market look like for Jarrod Saltalamacchia. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

If the Red Sox fail to bring Saltalamacchia back, could George Kottaras be an option? (Troy Patterson; Yawkey Way Academy)

Jhonny Peralta's deal with St. Louis has bothered some due to his recent ties to PEDs. Could it lead to harsher penalties in the near-future? (Bill Baer; Hardball Talk)
