Daily Red Sox Links: Xander Bogaerts, Ryan Brasier, Matt Barnes

In today’s links, everything is terrible except for the hitting of Xander Bogaerts. We’ve had plenty of time to dwell on the bad, so let’s appreciate the success Xander Bogaerts has had. (Mike Cratty; WEEI) And after that brief break in the action, let’s get back to examining what’s going wrong. Most recently, it was the bullpen. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$) Ryan Brasier struggled most recently. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) But Matt Barnes could turn the reliever regression around. (Juan Toribio; MLB.com) Something that might not be able to be fixed is Dustin...

Red Sox at A’s lineup: Still undefeated on Wednesdays, my dudes

It is not time to panic. It is time to watch the Red Sox beat the A’s. You wanna feel old? Opening Day was six days ago. This cold streak will end, hopefully starting tonight, but until then all we can do is curse the early season West Coast road trip with the most vigorous energy we can spare after staying up to watch these gut-punchers. At the very least, pic.twitter.com/WCcwWJPShM— It Is Wednesday (@MyDudes_) April 3, 2019 Bartolo?

The Yankees need to find a way to extend Didi Gregorius

The Yankees need to find a way to extend Didi Gregorius

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is the latest of many stars who have recently agreed to contract extensions with their clubs. Yesterday, I wrote about how the recent spate of superstar contract extensions isn’t good for the Yankees. Since the advent of modern-day free agency nearly a half-century ago, the Yankees have enjoyed the luxury of being able to use their considerable financial clout to grab elite talent on the free agent market whenever they chose to do so. That option is vanishing before our eyes, however, as superstars like Mike Trout, Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Chris...

In today’s links, everything is fine. Just fine. You may want to avert your eyes because Chad Finn has a close-up look at the first five starts for the Red Sox. (Chad Finn; Boston Globe) With the pitching staff having so much trouble, the Sox are in a new situation under Alex Cora. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Could this horrendous start produce effects further down the road? (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$) David Price isn’t afraid of any poor start and neither are his teammates. (Nick Goss; NBC Sports Boston) The same goes for Pedro Martinez. (Nick O’Malley; MassLive) If you missed it,...
