Daily Red Sox Links: Johnny Damon, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz

New, comment

Today's links look at Johnny Damon getting what he deserves, Dustin Pedroia no longer hitting home runs, and why "Papi being Papi" is a good thing.

What's Johnny Damon up to these days? That's right, you guessed it: getting plunked at Old Timer's Day at Yankee Stadium for playing for the Red Sox. Because the only thing worse than the enemy is a traitor. (Steve Silva, Boston.com)

Who might make the All-Star team other than Koji? (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Dustin Pedroia likely won't make it, in part because he's almost completely forgotten how to hit home runs. (Jason Mastrodonato; Masslive)

In an time of uncertainty, John Farrell is keeping his mouth shut, especially when it comes to pitching plans. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

What's always certain, however, is that baseball is just an individual sport masquerading as a team game. Just ask David Ortiz. (Christopher Gasper; Boston Globe)

But that doesn't mean we want him changing anything. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

And, as always, here are the Weekly Notes from Sox Prospects. (Sox Prospects)
