Dustin Pedroia, arguably the most irreplaceable player on the Red Sox roster, is officially day-to-day with a thumb injury. My guess is he'll be put on the Disabled List, but that hasn't been decided yet. (Tim Britton; The Providence Journal)

Chad Finn, as usual, has it right. The Red Sox need to do what is best for Dustin Pedroia, if for no other reason than because what is best for Dustin Pedroia is what is best for the Red Sox. (Chad Finn; The Boston Globe) Red over at Surviving Grady agrees wholeheartedly. As do I, if that wasn't clear. (Red; Surviving Grady)

With the draft coming up, Sox Prospects is running a four part series in preparation. The part first is here (by Mike Andrews) and the second is here (by Jon Meoli).

Felix Doubront isn't Felix Hernandez, but he's performed like he's in the same league with the Seattle ace of the first name. Harry Pavlidis takes a look at Felix's stuff and how he's been getting all those outs. (Harry Pavlidis; Fire Brand of the AL)

What do aging stars like Manny Ramirez, Hideki Matsui, Johnny Damon, and Vlad Guerrero have left? (Jay Jaffe: SI.com)

If you didn't see Lars Anderson's moon shot of a homer into (yes, into) the scoreboard in Pawtucket, Marc covered it here yesterday. Aaron Goldsmith spoke to Anderson about it afterwards. (Aaron Goldsmith; 45 Miles from Fenway)

You've probably heard about Curt Schilling and the problems he's encountered (created?) at his video game company, 38 Studios. There's much to be upset about, and the Common Man puts on his turd-proof pants and wades in. (The Common Man; The Platoon Advantage)

For what it's worth Jim Bowden thinks Will Middlebrooks will be pretty darn good. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

If you feel like getting upset, you should read this guy. (Paul Daugherty; SI.com)

Finally, whether you're a fan of Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy or not, just be glad you have them and therefore don't have to listen The Hawk 162 times a year. He (should be) gone! (Craig Calcaterra; Hardball Talk) Rob Neyer also gets into it. (Rob Neyer; Baseball Nation)
