Jim Rogash

Today's edition of the links bring you stories including an explanation for John Farrell's slow hook, Franklin Morales' return, and a great look at the team's ownership.

Yesterday's thrilling ninth inning ended with a walkoff double from Jacoby Ellsbury, which Tony Lee says could ultimately turn the season around for the struggling center fielder. (Tony Lee; ESPN Boston)

One thing John Farrell has been criticized for the most has been how long he's left his starting pitchers in. The manager explains his thought process regarding these decisions. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

Though he hasn't had anything close to the start that fans were hoping for, Will Middlebrooks continues to look to his veteran teammates for advice on the game. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

In some encouraging news for the pitching staff, Franklin Morales is expected to be back with the team on Tuesday. Also, Mike Carp has been pretty okay this season. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com)

It's an advantage that most pitchers strive for in every at bat, but Felix Doubront has been working to improve his results on 0-2 counts. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Forget small samples and all of that garbage. Jose Iglesias has been hitting well at the big-league level, and says he feels really comfortable up here. (Julian Benbow; Boston.com)

Among the seemingly endless former Red Sox employees coming back to town this weekend with Cleveland was Mike Aviles, who is enjoying his time and role with the Indians. (Jessica Camerato; CSN New England)
