David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Today's links look at Jackie Bradley's bat, Clay's comeback and how Big Papi feels about being part of the Nelson Cruz conversation.

Things are not good right now. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald)

But, at least JBJ's playing well. (Jeremy Gottlieb; Boston.com)

Because this season is starting to turn John Farrell into a cranky old man, (something Dan Shaughnessy knows a great deal about, and probably has since he was in high school.) (Dan Shaughnessy; Boston Globe)

Even with Clay Buchholz returning to form, hope is running low. (Jason Mastrodonato; Mass Live)

If only people could keep Papi's name out they mouth, Buck. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

And hey, maybe you'll be able to buy this baseball card with Daniel Nava's beard hair in it to relive the 2013 playoff run on Electronic Bay dot com. (Nicholas Goss; NESN)

All while looking at the Weekly Notes from Sox Prospects. (Luke Lavoie; Sox Prospects)
