Today’s links look at the lack of home runs from Boston’s lineup, the bullpen’s workload and the 1967 team’s legacy.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Red Sox haven’t been hitting many home runs. They are okay with it. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Of course, Xander Bogaerts had a pretty big home run on Wednesday. The shortstop seems to be turning things around. (Evan Drellich; CSN New England)

Speaking of Bogaerts, his path to the majors gives the organization a blueprint for guys like Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers. (Chad Jennings; Boston Herald)

It’s probably time to start making room on the Brandon Workman bandwagon. (Cam Ellis; BP Boston)

As far as the bullpen as a whole goes, John Farrell will try to monitor his relievers’ usage down the stretch. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

On Sunday, the Red Sox will be honoring Jerry Remy, who is in his 30th year of broadcasting for the team. (Jen McCaffrey; Masslive)

They honored the 1967 team on Wednesday, and though they didn’t win the World Series that team is a hugely important one for this franchise. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$$)
