Today's links include stories on whether or not Wade Boggs' number should be retired, some early season changes made by John Farrell, and David Ortiz beginning his rehab.

Despite being surprisingly solid with the bat this year, Jose Iglesias was sent down to Pawtucket to make room for Stephen Drew. He took his demotion in stride, though. (Joe McDonald; ESPN Boston)

Recently, Wade Boggs came out and said he would like to have his number retired by the Red Sox. Kirk Minahane believes he deserves it. (Kirk Minihane; WEEI.com)

We're still very early in the season, but John Farrell is already seeing things from Shane Victorino that is causing him to change his plans already. (Ian Browne & Jason Mastrodonato; RedSox.com)

Last night, David Ortiz made his first rehab appearance in Pawtucket, and he made it clear that he was looking to test himself. (Sean McAdam; CSN New England)

With the Astros moving to the American League this year, the differing rule on the DH between the two leagues has again come to the forefront, but is expansion the correct solution? (Garrett Wilson; The Outside Corner)

Daniel Nava has spent much of his baseball life proving people wrong, and he isn't about to stop now. (Jack Keller; Fire Brand of the AL)
