Daily Red Sox Links: Rafael Devers, Sean Manaea, Tzu-Wei Lin

The world is not ending because the Red Sox lost two games. Also, Rafael Devers talks parenthood, Sean Manaea could have been a Red Sox and Tzu-Wei Lin flashes the leather.

Welcome to Monday links. Some technical difficulties on my end this weekend means there’s no introductory topic this morning, but here are your links as usual. I’ll be back to full strength tomorrow.

Rafael Devers is playing excellent baseball this season and is coming into his own. But he’s more than just a baseball player, as he is a parent as well. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

After crushing every offering sent their way in the first 19 games, the Red Sox had a bit of trouble over the weekend. (Stephen Hewitt; Boston Herald)

Because of that, the Sox are now enduring an unspeakable burden. They’ve lost TWO STRAIGHT GAMES. When will the horror end? (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

David Price was great yesterday but he may have been left in there a little too long. Alex Cora was confident in that decision. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Sean Manaea was a player the Sox could have drafted in 2012, but they went with Trey Ball instead. While that seems like the wrong choice now, time will ultimately tell, although the fact that Ball has a 4.67 career ERA in the minors and is 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA with the Portland Sea Dogs this season isn’t helping his case. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Did you see Tzu-Wei Lin’s brilliant play at short on Saturday? (Christopher Smith; MassLive)
