PLAYERS: Craig Breslow
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Craig Breslow is one of the most intelligent, well-spoken players in Major League Baseball, so who better to give advice to the youngsters? A group of Little Leaguers from Avon, Conn. stopped by Red Sox GameDay LIVE on Sunday, and Breslow was kind enough to take some time and answer some questions for the kids from Baltimore. Perhaps unsurprisingly for a Yale alum, Breslow touted the advantages of getting an education to the kids. He also spoke of subjects beyond baseball, and generally how to become a well-rounded human being. Check out everything Breslow had to say in the video above.

Recapping Xander Bogaerts first weekend in Triple-A

  It's no question Boston Red Sox fans are getting eager to see top prospect Xander Bogaerts make his major league debut. At only 20 years, he has certainly showed fans why he deserves to be the organization's best up and coming player. At only 20 years old, Bogaerts last Thursday became the youngest player in Triple-A baseball and the youngest ever to suit up for the Pawtucket...

Bailey's 'Creamed' In 9th; Red Sox Still Win, 5-4

Mitchell Layton/Getty ImagesAll the Red Sox have to do for the rest of the season is go into the ninth with a 3-run lead or better. With that bulge, it should be a piece of cake for Andrew Bailey to close it out. Today, given a 5-2 lead, Bailey gave up a two-run HR to Matt Wieters and was one bonehead running play away from maybe allowing the O's to tie the game. The Sox ended...

Your Afternoon Dump... Where Iglesias is forcing out Drew

(USA Today Sports Images) 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.

David Ortiz Making Right Move by Skipping Home Run Derby, Everyone Involved Should Benefit From Decision

David Ortiz is done with the Home Run Derby. And that’s quite alright. Ortiz, a five-time participant and winner of the 2010 Home Run Derby, told WEEI.com recently that he won’t partake in this year’s competition if he’s asked by American League captain Robinson Cano.

Red Sox’ Mike Carp exits with hamstring injury

Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Carp exited yesterday’s loss to the Baltimore Orioles with right hamstring tightness.

"He felt cramping go up first base, but I...

Dustin Pedroia Gets Rare Day of Rest as Jose Iglesias Tries Hand at Second Base

For the first time in 2013, Dustin Pedroia will not be in the Red Sox lineup Sunday. But don’t worry, unlike teammates Mike Napoli and Clay Buchholz, there’s no malady keeping Pedroia off the field, it’s just a (very rare) scheduled day off. In his place, Jose Iglesias will get the crack at second base, looking to work on that utility infielder status. Since being recalled...

Again, 'Lester' Rather Than More; Sox Lose, 6-3

(Mitchell Layton/Getty Images)Jon Lester continued his long slide from dominance to doghouse with five more uninspired innings in a 6-3 Red Sox loss. There was a time when the feathered ones from Camden could not touch Lester, now he's just another lefty. Lester threw 106 pitches, gave up nine hits and five runs—and coughed up a monster 2-run HR to Chris Davis. Behind 5-0,...

MASH Unit: Buch may hit DL; Carp confident; Napoli passes test

The Guru Contributing Writer If Clay Buchholz doesn't throw in the bullpen Tuesday, he's likely headed for the disabled list. Buchholz is still experiencing pain in his neck. If he’s alright after the bullpen session, he could start Saturday in Detroit. If Buchholz can't go, the Saturday starter could be Rubby De La Rosa or Allen Webster. That' a lot of "...

Mike Carp Exits Game Against Orioles With Hamstring Tightness

Everything has been going right for Mike Carp recently. Things changed on Sunday. Carp exited Sunday’s game against the Orioles in the seventh inning with right hamstring tightness.

The Road Worrier: David Ortiz cooling down?

Jan-Christian Sorensen Contributing Writer While David Ortiz has been assembling a scorching-hot season since returning from his Achilles injury in mid-April, his stats took an extended ice bath on Boston’s recent road swing. During the seven-game trip to Tampa Bay and Baltimore, Ortiz went three-for-26 (.115) with one home run and one RBI, was held hitless in four of those games...

Report: Red Sox Agree to Terms With Third-Round Pick Jon Denney, Who Figured to Be a Tough Sign

Jon Denney, considered by many to be a first-round talent, slipped to the third round of this year’s MLB draft. That’s where the Red Sox snatched him up with the 81st overall pick, although there was concern about whether they’d be able to sign the 18-year-old catcher. It looks like that concern can be put to rest. According to Baseball America’s Jim Callis, the Red Sox have...

Daniel Nava Sits, Jonny Gomes Back in Lineup as Red Sox Look to Stop Skid Against Orioles

Jon Lester Shows Better Command, But Lefty’s Lack of Results Becoming Major Concern for Red Sox

A lot has happened since May 15. The Bruins defeated both the Rangers and Penguins en route to a Stanley Cup berth, the Patriots signed Tim Tebow and the Celtics reportedly could face life without Doc Rivers. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have continued rolling for the most part, although something that hasn’t happened since that date should have them a bit concerned. May 15 marks the...
