Abelimages

Today's links look at Xander's growing pains and Nomar's thoughts on them, along with AJ Pierzynski's rapport with the pitching staff and more!

Did you know the Red Sox are off to a (relatively) rough start? Did you also know that it's probably nothing to worry about? (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

Plus, the team has an ever-improving Xander Bogaerts to look forward to even if he's had some growing pains. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

Which even has Nomar excited. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Likely to aid in a turnaround will be A.J. Pierzynski's improving relationship with the pitching staff after some miscommunication earlier this year. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

A staff that will hopefully include a resurgent Clay Buchholz, whose mixed results so far have made more than a few people nervous about his prospects for the season. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Speaking of prospects, Sox Prospects essential Weekly Notes column is here for your persual. (Sox Prospects)

And finally, there's this brilliant breakdown of the Red Sox's defense so far from the Fire Brand of the AL. (Daniel Poarch; Fire Brand of the AL)
