Today's links look at the amazing Brock Holt, Boston's pitching depth, and the team's weak performance in close games.

Grady Sizemore being designated for assignment was a move that was overdue, according to Steve Buckley. (Steve Buckley; Boston Herald)

Speaking of the move, Brock Holt's ever-growing versatility made it possible. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive.com)

While the Red Sox don't really have an up-and-coming ace in their system, they are flush with mid-rotation depth. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com)

Holt scored the winning run last night after an aggressive decision to steal third, a move that was made because of Brian Butterfield. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

Dustin Pedroia has had a rough season at the plate by his standards, and it's okay to admit that it may be a big part of what is hurting this offense. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

David Ross is a bit worried that Brock Holt may be able to play behind the dish, too. (NESN)

A big part of Boston's struggles this season has been their performance in one-run games. (Jared Carrabis; Sox Space)
