Daily Red Sox Links: Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester, John Lackey

Jim Rogash

Today's links bring you stories on topics including the state of the Red Sox rotation, an interesting mentor-mentee moment in Pawtucket and reasons to hate the other AL East teams.

Clay Buchholz hasn't been getting much in the way of great news of late, and Alex Speier checks how the team's rotation stacks up without their ace. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

If you follow the other sports around Boston, you know it's been a pretty wild week or so around here. Chad Finn tries to refocus everyone's attention on the Red Sox. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

Last night the Red Sox continued a trend of scoring runs in bunches early in games. (Gordon Edes; ESPN Boston)

After pitching as well as he has in over a month, Jon Lester exited the game last night with some sort of lower body injury. Luckily, it doesn't sound like anything too serious. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

In a clash of prospect worlds of sorts, Xander Bogaerts received some defensive tips from Will Middlebrooks last night. (Paul Kenyon; Providence Journal)

Show me someone who thought John Lackey would be the pitcher to get them through a Buchholz injury in March and I'll show you a big fat liar. (Sean McAdam; CSN New England)

If you needed any help to find reasons to dislike Boston's division rivals, Jack Keller is here to help. (Jack Keller; Fire Brand of the AL)
