Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Dustin Pedroia, Craig Kimbrel

In today’s links, we’re already looking at next season with a healthy Chris Sale and Dustin Pedroia and a possible replacement for Craig Kimbrel. Or maybe Kimbrel will just resign. That would work as well.

Chris Sale should be back and fully healthy next season. If Dustin Pedroia is as well, he’ll lead off the season opener. (Ian Browne; MLB.com)

I will never get tired of reading about Alex Cora’s exceptional first season as manager. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$)

Craig Kimbrel is a free agent this offseason. I’d expect the Red Sox to bring him back, but if not, get ready for Matt Barnes or Ryan Brasier as the closer. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Speaking of the offseason, the job of a GM never ends. Just ask Dave Dombrowski. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

J.D. Martinez was someone Dombrowksi added last year and he had an all-time season and not just because of launch angles. (Eno Sarris; The Athletic) ($$)

Winning the World Series sure is thirsty work. (Coleman Bentley; Yahoo! Sports)
