Today's edition of the links brings you stories on David Ortiz's special connection with the city, John Lackey's maturation towards walks, and last night's news regarding the Biogenesis scandal.

John Lackey has been around this league for a while now, and he has learned that every walk isn't the end of the world. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

It was one the biggest stories of the entire offseason, and now it's looking like the controversy surrounding Biogenesis is about to rear its ugly head again. (TJ Quinn; ESPN.com)
