Daily Red Sox Links: Babe Ruth, Larry Lucchino, A.J. Pierzynski

Jim Rogash

Today's links look at the debut of Babe Ruth, the mind of Larry Lucchino and the reign of A.J. Pierzynski.

Babe Ruth debuted for the Red Sox 100 years ago today. And he never played for another team. Don't bother looking that up, but read this. (Steve Buckley; Boston Herald)

Little known fact: Dan Shaughnessy thought it was a terrible idea to start him that game. (Bonus fact: this link  is to an interview between Shaughnessy and Larry Lucchino.) (Dan Shaughnessy; Boston Globe)

A few opinions on A.J: First off, LEAVE A.J. ALONE! (Eric Wilbur; Boston.com)

Second: It was probably for the best! (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)

Next: He was terrible, but it was all part of the plan! (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Finally: IT WAS ALL HIS FAULT! (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

But there's also good news: our knuckleballer is pitching very well. (Luke Lavoie; Sox Prospects)

And if ESPN is talking about it, it means our youth movement is now official. (ESPN)
