The “Sox Drawer” runs Tuesdays and Thursdays on BoSox Injection. We compile material about the team from all corners of the Internet, as well as some general baseball-related links. If you have suggestions, hit us up on Twitter @BoSoxInjection. 

Stop trying to make “fetch” happen, John Farrell. Joe Kelly could’ve thrown more than 86 pitches last night, but was pulled after allowing a leadoff double in the seventh. Junichi Tazawa then proceeded to surrender another blast to the Blue Jays, continuing a disturbing trend, via Rob Bradford.

At least Farrell isn’t Ned Yost, who may have just negatively compared Royals fans to Braves fans, which, if you’re not familiar with baseball, is probably the worst insult one can conjure.

Oh! Rays fans. That would be worse.

Ben Lindbergh broke down the Rusney Castillo signing on Grantland.

Brett Cowett expresses optimism about Dustin Pedroia at Fire Brand of the AL, while Alex Skillin tries to fix Clay Buchholz. Easier said than done.

The Cubs lost 7-5 last night, but the real story was Jorge Soler‘s first career home run. Man, those Cubs are fun, aren’t they?
