Let’s thank the sweet, sweet baseball gods for gracing us with the 2013 All-Star break, shall we? The injuries for the Boston Red Sox are piling up quickly and the break couldn’t possibly have picked a better time to show up. If it wasn’t bad already, Andrew Miller is now likely done for the season. According to the Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham, Miller has a torn ligament between bones in the middle of his foot that will more than likely see season-ending surgery. Let’s see what else? Stephen Drew hasn’t played since  the 28th of June with a hamstring injury, and Victorino is struggling with the same thing. Clay Buchholz is still on the shelf and slowly approaching a couple rehab starts, meanwhile Alex Wilson has just been diagnosed with a sprained thumb. When does it stop, you say? Well besides Ellsbury dealing with wrist soreness, David Ross out with a concussion, and nobody knowing what was up with Aceves the other night, I’d say the Sox’ are pretty healthy. John Farrell If you have been watching the Red Sox over this west coast trip, you have seen what I would call band-aids all over the field: Brock Holt, Steven Wright, Brandon Workman, Jackie Bradley Jr, (again) Brandon Snyder, and Jonathan Diaz. I’m not lying when I say that all these guys have been on the field, sometimes even at the same time, during these last few games. Third base has seen a number of different names with Drew out and Middlebrooks in AAA, and with the loss of Miller and the demotion to Webster, the door opened up for Wright and Workman to see some playing time. It’s really a marvelous display of depth and fortitude because throughout all this, the Sox’ keep winning. Getting some of these minor leaguers at-bats in the bigs early on is a good way to acclimate them to it, so that later in the season if something happens to someone, (and something always does) then it won’t be the new to them to step into that role. I think you have to commend Farrell for the tough decisions, and challenging situations he has navigated through to this point in the year. It is going to be a breathe of fresh air to take some time off and hopefully get a couple guys back healthy.   *If you didn’t watch today’s game, you missed a pretty good one as the Red Sox beat the Mariners 8-7 in 10 innings.   **Stephen Wright pitched 5 2/3 of three hit ball today after Dempster’s struggled that may secure a start for him Sunday against the Athletics.   *** Brock Holt drove in a pair of important RBI’s, both with two outs in the inning.   **** Daniel Nava came through with the game-winning hit in the top of the tenth.   ***** The Red Sox improved to 4-3 on this 10-game road trip
