Today's links look at the team's issues in low-scoring games, the pitching staff's propensity to allowing home runs, and a look at how Anderson Espinoza ranks among some of his more age-appropriate peers.

The Red Sox don't look as unbeatable as they did earlier in the year, and part of the reason is their inability to win close, low-scoring games. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

With Hanley Ramirez struggling (last night's home run notwithstanding), Boston's lineup suddenly doesn't look so deep. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

The pitching staff is struggling too, and home runs are a big reason for it. (Brett Cowett; BP Boston)

Clay Buchholz has been a big part of that, and his start on Tuesday was good enough to earn him another start but not good enough to ease any concerns. (John Tomase; WEEI)

Some bad news for Brock Holt, who is still not symptom-free. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Chris Crawford has an interesting thought experimenting wondering where Anderson Espinoza would go in the last amateur draft. (Chris Crawford; Baseball Prospectus)

Another top prospect, Rafael Devers, seems to have a decent chance at being traded this summer. What's his value look like. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)
