New, 1 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)
