We now resume our regularly scheduled linkage.

Back In Boston

On Pedroia's Most Awesome Of At Bats -- Scott Lauber, Boston Herald

Clay Buchholz Gets Ground Balls, Wins -- Brian MacPherson, Providence Journal

Jacoby Ellsbury Day-To-Day With Bruised Knee -- Alex Speier, WEEI

MLB In General

Roger McDowell Suspended For Two Weeks -- Grant Brisbee, Baseball Nation

I don't so much mind that he was being inappropriate on the field. That's just not being mindful of your surroundings. But what McDowell did when the paying fan with his children asked him to stop deserves a lot more than two weeks off in my mind.
