Daily Red Sox Links: A.J. Pierzynski, Pedro Martinez, David Ortiz

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Today's links look at A.J.'s stubbornness, along with the unbridled awesomeness of Perdo Martinez and David Ortiz.

"A.J. Pierzynski isn't going to change his style" has likely been a headline in every town he's ever played in. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

Which is probably why he headlines this position-by-position look at Boston's offensive deficiencies. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Though his acquisition is probably not as big a mistake as Stephen Drew has been. (Kirk Minihane; WEEI)

In less depressing news, Pedro is "really impressed" by the Red Sox pitching prospects. (Nick Solari; NESN)

David Ortiz hit a home run after promising a group of sick children he would.  (Steve Silva; Boston.com)

And Pedro gave out ice cream in front of the Prudential Center. (Nick O'Malley, MassLive)

Finally, here's an in-depth scouting report on Henry Owens. (Ian Cundall; Sox Prospects)
