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. The Red Sox announced following Wednesday’s 6-5 victory over the A’s that they have optioned right-hander Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket. It is not yet known whom the Sox will call up to take his place on the roster. The decision comes one day after Aceves had an abysmal start in which he yielded eight runs in 3 1/3 innings, with his ERA for the year ballooning to 8.66. “The bottom line is just that: The bottom line. You’ve got to perform to continue to get opportunities,” manager John Farrell said prior to Wednesday’s game, before the Sox announced the roster move. “We’re undecided as far as Sunday goes as far as the starter. That will become more clear tomorrow after Lackey’s bullpen. I’ve had a chance to meet with Alfredo [on Wednesday] just to discuss [Tuesday] night — not so much the role going forward. But it still comes down to continuing to earn those opportunities. There’s been mixed results over the time period [since last August].” WEEI: Aceves gets demoted After seeing Aceves get lit up by the Athletics only to have him blame everything except his inability to throw decent pitches, you had to figure something was coming down the line. I thought they would have maybe outright release him but he still had some options to go down to the minors, which makes his outbursts even crazier. Then again we're talking about Mr. Eyes of Satan here. The plan to put him in the rotation in AAA is fine. Get him to look decent and then dangle him out to anyone in need of starting pitching. There's a slim chance that he'll return to the Majors as a member of the Red Sox. If the team needs a spot start, Allen Webster & Steven Wright could be the go to guys for that until Franklin Morales is done with his rehab stints.  It's a damn shame since Aceves started his Red Sox career with a bang and we wondered why the Yankees let someone go who was a solid part of their bullpen.  Now we know.  Rest of the Links: Sox save best for last | In the danger zone, but Lester hangs in | Aceves sent to AAA | Herald: Hanrahan may be out of luck | Lester's frustration mounts on mound | Aceves gets demoted | CSNNE: Sox continue clean up | Despite frustration, Lester doesn't unravel | Sox rebound, take series with 6-5 win | Bailey 'outstanding' in closing role | Ortiz continues to make progress against Oakland | WEEI: Revisiting closer by committee | Sox option Aceves to Pawtucket | Sox call up Lavarnway
