Jim Rogash

Today's links bring you stories covering new looks on the Shane Victorino contract, a possible change in role for Clay Buchholz, and the expanded rosters coming at the turn of the month.

Shane Victorino's contract wasn't very well-received when he first signed it this winter, but it has to be reconsidered after the way he's played this year. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Despite a lackluster ERA at AA, Matt Barnes has gotten the call to Pawtucket for the end of the season. (Will Woodward; Sox Prospects)

The talk of moving Clay Buchholz to the bullpen upon his return is basically a non-story at this point. (Ben Shapiro; Masslive.com)

Chad Finn also has a positive retrospective on the Shane Victorino signing. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

It's almost September, which means Ben Cherington has some decisions to make regarding the expanded rosters. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Though he's in a bigger spot than he's ever found himself in his baseball career to this point, Xander Bogaerts is still going about his business as usual. (Mark Daniels; Boston Herald)

For some assorted thoughts on the team, we turn to Hunter Golden. (Hunter Golden; Fire Brand of the AL)
