Daily Red Sox Links: Craig Kimbrel, Steve Pearce, Free Agency

We are firmly in the offseason and Craig Kimbrel and Steve Pearce are two integral parts of the Red Sox’s World Series team that are going to discussed in Boston’s plans. Plus a new name for the PawSox.

Conventional wisdom says since they don’t have an heir apparent at closer, the Red Sox would be smart to re-sign Craig Kimbrel. There may be reasons to believe otherwise. (Matthew Kory; The Athletic) ($$)

Is there a chance not signing Kimbrel would actually make the Sox better? (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Steve Pearce, the guy who won the World Series MVP, is another free agent. He’s already making his pitch to come back. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

But there are a lot of non-Red Sox on the free agent mark. Where should they all go and how much will they make? (Jim Bowden; The Athletic) ($$)

In Boston, the playoffs were pretty great. But what about from the overall perspective? (Shane Tourtellotte; The Hardball Times)

The PawSox need a new name now that they are no longer in Pawtucket. (Dan McLoone; Boston Globe)
