Daily Red Sox Links: Clay Buchholz, Mookie Betts, Mike Napoli

Darren McCollester

Today's links look at Clay Buchholz's well-being, Mookie Betts' big bat and Mike Napoli's measured approach at the plate.

If you think that Clay Buchholz has lost something on his fastball, you aren't alone. While it's not a big drop, it's still something to look out for going forward. (Dave D'Onofrio; Boston.com)

And it doesn't look like pre-game naps in Fenway's "sleep room" have helped him out much. (Mike Silverman; Boston Herald)

Don't worry, though, because it's going to be okay, everyone! According to the internet, the team has gotten back to basics at the plate. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

That includes Mike Napoli, who has been meeting his preseason goal of reducing strikeouts. (Peter Abraham; The Boston Globe)

Though if it doesn't work out with Napoli, Sox Prospects have their weekly look into the future to make us feel better. (SoxProspects)

However, if that doesn't make you feel better, the Fire Brand of the AL thinks Mookie Betts can hit .400. (Josh Cookson; Fire Brand of the AL)

But if all else fails, the Red Sox can hopefully get some of the magical championship dust that UConn's basketball programs have been using when the visit Fenway tonight. (NESN)

And ultimately, it's days like Patriots' Day and moments like the city coming together for the Marathon that are much more important more than wins and losses. No matter how nice they are. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston)
