Today we appreciate Chris Young, Drew Pomeranz is holding onto his cutter and Joe Kelly is not getting strikeouts.

Chris Young was in the lineup on Tuesday night, and even if he went 0-for-4, the Red Sox coaching staff likes his work on and off the field. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Before last night’s disaster, Drew Pomeranz had put together a solid to start this season, relying heavily on strikeouts. Those results came even as he waits to mix in his cutter more frequently. (Evan Drellich; CSNNE)

However, Pomeranz was shelled last night and quick outings from him and other starters is taxing an already thin Red Sox bullpen. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald)

Mookie Betts is having success in the leadoff spot and he should continue to bat there. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Joe Kelly has some good stuff, including a 100 mph fastball, out of the bullpen. So why isn’t he striking more batters out? (Chris Teeter; BP Boston)

Brian Butterfield has been a Michigan fan for a long time and he and Robby Scott apparently had some fun via text during the Wolverines’ clash with Florida State during last season’s Orange Bowl. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Some people are wondering if Cubs fans are more obnoxious than Red Sox fans. Well, that didn’t take long. (Mark Kiszla; Denver Post)
