Found June 30, 2013 on Ted's Army:
(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer) Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Bautista went 2-for-4 with two home runs, two runs scored, and three RBI. It was his 21st career multi-home run game and fourth this season. He now has 201 home runs in his career, and 18 this season. Bautista has 16 career home runs at Fenway, all since 2008, his most at any ballpark as a visitor. He has at least one home run in each of the last five series at Fenway since July 4, 2011. He also threw out Shane Victorino at the plate, trying to score from second, for the first out of the sixth inning. It was the second straight game he has thrown out a runner at the plate.  It was his seventh outfield assist this season, and the fourth time he’s thrown out a runner at home. CSNNE: Bautista launches Blue Jays past Sox, 6-2 The Red Sox were emasculated by Jose Bautista yesterday. A pair of homers, gunning down Victorino at the plate, just existing at Fenway Park. Bautista beat the Sox on his own, and it was frustrating to watch. Bautista and Encarnacion have killed the Sox, and they seem to have no answer for them. If it were up to me, I'd throw up  four fingers from the dugout when they are up to the plate. It would be a smart decision. On Page 2, Clay Buchholz starts another throwing program Right-hander Clay Buchholz, on the DL retroactive to June 9 with what was diagnosed earlier this week as inflammation of the bursa sac, threw before Saturday's game. He played catch in the outfield as the start of a throwing program.Buchholz, who is 9-0 with an American League-best 1.71 ERA, had attempted to throw from a mound on Wednesday for the first time since his last start on June 8. But he shut down his session after about 15-18 pitches, and underwent an MRI later that day, which revealed the inflammation in the bursa sac. The prescribed course of treatment at that time was to give the right-hander several days of rest before he could begin throwing again. Saturday was the first time since then he attempted to throw. CSNNE: Buchholz begins throwing program Let's see how long this one lasts. It is hard to be optimistic about Clay's recovery. Every time he seems to make the least bit of progress, it is halted and his return projection get pushed back. I don't want to see him until he is 100%, because he is so damn fragile. His pitching style does not match his physique. He throws with such intensity and puts so much behind each pitch, that his body just can't seem to handle it...season after season. It's pretty frustrating.

Jose Bautista Reminds Fans He is More Than Just a Home Run Hitter

Ever since he hit 54 home runs back in 2010 Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista has been known for wielding a pretty big stick when he gets up to bat. He proved that the following year when he knocked in 43 in 2011, and where it not for injuries that caused him to miss almost half the season he would have certainly hit more than 27 in 2012.

Jose Can Clearly See; Red Sox Fall To Jays, 6-2
