Jim Rogash

Today's links look at the Red Sox's strategy with their pitchers during this stretch of days off, the continued struggle with runners on base, and kind words about Trey Ball.

The Red Sox have two days off this week, and the fact that they are sticking with their rotation is an indication of their confidence in their starting pitchers remaining in tact. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Jon Lester put forth an amazing performance on Saturday, and it was one of the best ever by a left-handed pitcher. (Jason Mastrodonato; Masslive.com)

The offense has picked it up of late, but runners are still being stranded left and right. (Brian Roach; Fire Brand of the AL)

As of right now, it appears Edward Mujica will avoid the DL. (Tony Lee; ESPN Boston)

Dustin Pedroia hit a milestone home run over the weekend, and he may be seeing more of those as his career progresses. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Felix Doubront is right on the edge of being left out of the rotation. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

David Lee watched Trey Ball pitch on Saturday, and had some wonderful things to say about the 2013 first round pick. (David Lee; Augusta Chronicle)
