Daily Red Sox Links: John Lackey, Stephen Drew, Jose Iglesias

Jim Rogash

Today's jam-packed edition of Daily Links includes updates on John Lackey's rehab outing with Portland, a story on Stephen Drew's optimism, and memory-jogger of a six-year anniversary that went relatively unnoticed for an feat that was anything but.

John Lackey feels like he can be ready to return to the majors in five days, but notes that he's not 100 percent -- though, he'll probably never be. (Evan Drellich; MassLive.com)

Though he did muster a hit last night, Stephen Drew is struggling to find his footing with Boston. He's batting .121/.237/.152 with five walks, 12 strikeouts and one RBI in 38 plate appearances, but before the game he asserted that everything will come along just fine.

Jose Iglesias is in Triple-A and could very well stick there for most of the season barring any setbacks, so how are the Red Sox club handling the defensive-first shortstop while he's down with Pawtucket? (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

The Red Sox' future looks bright with Allen Webster under its wings. Yesterday the high-ceiling prospect exhibited a preview of that promising future. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

If the Iglesias-Drew controversy at short isn't enough, there could be a closer controversy brewing in Boston. John Farrell has yet to say if Joel Hanrahan will return to his role as go-to guy in the ninth. (Steve Lauber; Boston Herald)

The highly esteemed Peter Gammons is astonished by how much Boston's players care about the city. (Jerry Spar; WEEI.com)

Yesterday was the six year anniversary of a certain feat that transpired in 2007 that will forever be ingrained in Red Sox fans' memories. Here's the video, for those who have no clue what I'm alluding to. (h/t Tim Healey of SoxProspects.com)
