The Red Sox are in a position where their playoff odds are certainly looking good, but there is also work that remains. Alex Cora needs to find that balance especially when it comes to second base. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Part of that balance is in getting Christian Arroyo in, who, unlike José Iglesias, is eligible for the postseason roster. And come October, John Tomase says he’s an extremely important player. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

Another balancing act Alex Cora will be performing is going to be in the ninth inning. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

Nick Yorke was named Player of the Year in the minor-league system, and met with media at Fenway on Wednesday. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

Yorke also made the list of prospects who have taken big leaps this year. (Kiley McDaniel; ESPN)

There was a lot of criticism, including plenty from yours truly, about the deadline bullpen acquisitions. They’ve actually turned out to be pretty alright. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)
