Daily Red Sox Links: Jackie Bradley, Stephen Drew, Kevin Youkilis

Jim Rogash

Today's links look at how the Red Sox will fill their void at the leadoff spot, a new sport at Fenway, and a cool story on why Kevin Youkilis will be playing in Japan next season.

According to one high-profile prospect analyst, Jackie Bradley has the potential to have a bigger impact in his career than Jacoby Ellsbury. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Speaking of Ellsbury, the Red Sox have no obvious choice to replace him as the leadoff man. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)

It's looking more and more like a possibility that Stephen Drew could be coming back to Boston. If he does, John Farrell would play no small role in making that happen. (CSN New England)

In two years, Fenway Park will be hosting its first football game since 1968. (Providence Journal)

Kevin Youkilis' top priority this offseason was to find a way to spend as much time next season with his family as possible. So, why did he end up signing with a team in Japan? (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Shin-Soo Choo signed with the Rangers over the weekend, which has given them possibly the best offense in the American League. (Jason Matrodonato; Masslive.com)

Teams across baseball are still awaiting word on whether or not Masashiro Tanaka will be posted this winter. If he's not, the Red Sox will be beneficiaries. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)
