Daily Red Sox Links: Clay Buchholz, Mookie Betts, Brock Holt

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Today's links feature some "myth debunking" from Dan Shaughnessy, how superstition may have helped end the losing streak and what the heck might be wrong with Clay Buchholz

Not surprisingly, Dan Shaughnessy manages to make myth debunking an exercise in exasperation. (Dan Shaughnessy; Boston Globe)

Speaking of myth, here's a story about how superstition may have helped the Red Sox end their losing streak.  (Jason Mastrodonato; MassLive)

Though it may be a fact that the Red Sox have seen the best of Clay Buchholz already. (Adam Kaufman; Boston.com)

At the very least, Clay himself can't figure out what's wrong. (John Tomas; Boston Herald)

But despite all this, Ben Cherington doesn't think it's time for Mookie Betts quite yet. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Though maybe some of these reinforcements might be a good idea. (Daniel Poarch; Firebrand of the AL)

For now, just check out the Weekly Notes at Sox Prospects and dream of a bright bright future, coming later rather than sooner. (Sox Prospects)
