MLB: Colorado Rockies at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

Eduardo Rodriguez has flashed brilliance in a Boston uniform but something always seems to catch up with him, like on Tuesday when he allowed three home runs in five innings of work. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Prior to Wednesday, Tyler Thornburg had amassed 42 23 total innings across 41 career appearances with the Red Sox. In that time he was 31 percent below league average according to ERA+. That makes him a pitcher the Sox should stop putting on the mound. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)

The Red Sox haven’t exactly dominated the teams below them in the standings. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Michael Chavis and Marcus Walden prove that the Red Sox’s minor league affiliates have talent that can help at the MLB level right now. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Speaking of guys who could get a promotion, Marco Hernandez could get another opportunity. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

The Boston Bruins are going to face the St. Louis Blues for the Stanley Cup. The Red Sox know a bit about defeating a team from St. Louis for a title. (Steve Buckley; The Athletic) ($$)

Koji Uehara helped deliver one of those titles and now he is riding off into the baseball sunset. (Sung Min Kim; FanGraphs)
