Daily Red Sox Links: Dustin Pedroia, Franklin Morales, John Lackey

Jim Rogash

Today's links look at the eventual end of David Ortiz's career, Quintin Berry's inspiration for his role on this team, and a projection of the playoff roster.

As if we needed any more proof that Dustin Pedroia was awesome, he'll be playing through some pain to help the Red Sox try to reach their ultimate goal. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

Gordon Edes had to be a downer and remind us that David Ortiz's Red Sox career won't last forever. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

Franklin Morales wasn't around for most of the season, but he's looking at a likely spot on the postseason roster. (Evan Drellich; Masslive.com)

The final rotation for the playoffs isn't set in stone, but look for John Lackey to get his start at Fenway Park. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)

Quintin Berry knows that his spot on this team is at least partially because of one notable man in recent Red Sox history. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Adam Kaufman projects the playoff roster, with one glaring omission (in my opinion), in Morales. (Adam Kaufman; Boston.com)

They stuck around longer than I would've thought, given how bad their lineup was for much of the year, but the Yankees were officially eliminated last night. (Matthew Pouliot; Hardball Talk)
