Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Mike Napoli, Joe Kelly

Today's links look at a possible Rick Porcello extension, a lot of players feeling confident about the new season, and saying goodbye to one of the best men in baseball history. As Rick Porcello enters his last season before free agency, should Boston try to extend him? (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal) It may all be moot, though, as he's not ready to talk about an extension just yet. (Jason Mastrodonato; Masslive.com) Mike Napoli gave some pretty shocking details regarding his battle with sleep apnea and the surgery he had to fix it. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald) Joe Kelly is kind...

Porcello can't help but look ahead to what might be

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- A year away from free agency, it's hard for Boston Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello not to think about what he could make if he were to hit the open market. Just look at his former teammate, Max Scherzer. Scherzer entered this offseason as one of the top free agent pitchers before signing a seven-year, $210 million deal with the Washington Nationals. Porcello said he didn't talk to Scherzer much during the entire process. But he definitely recognized the end result, prompting him to text Scherzer after the deal was complete.

Today's links look at the case against Pedro as a first ballot Hall of Famer, the case for David Ortiz, and the "calculated Rick" the Red Sox have taken with Mr. Porcello.

Red Sox, Rick Porcello bet on big year

Red Sox, Rick Porcello bet on big year

A trade, one like any other, brought Rick Porcello to the Red Sox last month. It might be helpful, though, to think of it more as a wager.Because, make no mistake, the Sox are betting on Porcello. They are betting he throws 200 innings, as he did last season for the Tigers, and keeps the ball on the ground enough to benefit from strong infield defense. Most of all, they are betting he replaces No. 2 starter John Lackey, if not ace Jon Lester.But Porcello is betting on himself, too.
