Daily Red Sox Links: Jacoby Ellsbury, Felix Doubront, Drake Britton

Elsa

Today's edition includes stories on Jacoby Ellsbury talking about Scott Boras, Felix Doubront's eagerness heading into his first start, and the present and future converging in Portland.

A lot has been made about Jacoby Ellsbury and how his impending free agency is extremely contingent on Scott Boras. The outfielder said it's his choice when to sign, and not his agent's. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Just like last season, Felix Doubront will make his season debut in Toronto. He feels more relaxed than last season, and he's eager to get things started. (Ian Browne; MLB.com)

Drake Britton, as you may recall, was arrested during spring training for driving under the influence, yet he was the starter for the Portland Sea Dogs in their opener last night. Gordon Edes, like many others, feel the Red Sox are sending the wrong message to Britton. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston.com)

While making his first rehab appearance with Portland, Stephen Drew got a close look at the Red Sox' future shortstop. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

The Red Sox have found early success with the unorthodox shifts. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Old pal Kevin Youkilis has some thoughts on the Red Sox, specifically Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)
