Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

Today's links include stories featuring an interesting Mike Carp comparison, a review of the Red Sox draft class, and a certain spot starter who has performed admirably in this role.

During the second game of yesterday's double header we learned that David Ross would be heading back to the 7-day DL. Luckily for Boston, their starting catcher has been performing very well this season. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Mike Carp has been a real pleasant surprise this season, and Chad Finn compares him to a former Red Sox player who many may have forgotten about. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

We've had some time to digest the Red Sox draft now, and Chris Crawford reviews their class. (Chris Crawford; MLB Draft Insider)

Next year will mark the first season in what seems like forever that the Yankees will start the year without Mariano Rivera in their bullpen. Who do they have to replace him? (Josh Norris; Baseball Prospectus)

Speaking of closers, remember Joel Hanrahan? Rob Bradford checks in on the rehabbing pitcher. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

Once again Alfredo Aceves was called up for a spot start and once again he performed well enough to put the Red Sox in a winning position. It's time to accept him, says Michael Silverman. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald)

According to David Schoenfield, Jose Iglesias' hit streak is a "sham" with all of his infield singles. Because I'm sure all of Joe DiMaggio's hits were rockets. (David Schoenfield; ESPN.com)

For everyone worried about Jerry Remy's absence recently, it seems he may be giving us a statement on the matter tomorrow. Here's hoping it's good news. (Ron Chimelis; Masslive.com)
