Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Today's edition is overflowing with links ranging from Clay Buchholz to Brandon Lyon, Xander Bogaerts and Jake Peavy (since you can never get enough of the latter two!) so strap in and get ready for the wild ride ahead.

Clay Buchholz wants us to know he wants to be out there, and he believes he'll ramp up this intensity on Friday. (Joe McDonald; ESPNBoston.com)

In Buchholz's absence, the fans will be watching Jake Peavy, who said Thursday he's ready to pitch in Boston. (Adam Kurkjian; Boston Herald)

Peavy also explained a bizarre situation involving his eyesight during his presser on Thursday. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston.com)

PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina mentioned Xander Bogaerts in the same breath as Mike Trout during a radio appearance on WEEI. This marks the second time he's brought the Angels phenom when discussing Bogaerts, the first occurred in June. (Tim Healey; WEEI.com)

Speaking of Bogaerts, he'll be arriving in Boston sooner rather than later. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston.com)

Jose Iglesias went to Twitter to thank the Red Sox for his time spent with the organization. (Evan Drellich; MassLive.com)

As we learned last year, a big move can always happen after that July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The Red Sox know this as well. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Nick O'Malley believes Boston will be fine without an ace after what he saw from John Lackey on Wednesday. (Nick O'Malley; MassLive.com)

The PawSox announced that right-hander Brandon Lyon has opted out of his contract and that Jackie Bradley, Jr. has been placed on the DL, marking the second time he's been on it this season. (Rob Bradford; WEEI.com)

Lyon's departure is all circumstantial, as explained by Brendan McGair. (Brendan McGair; Pawtucket Times)
