What Craig Breslow Does and Doesn’t Teach Us About Baseball

At 35 years young, Craig Breslow was pressed into duty in the starting rotation this September after plying his trade for years in the bullpen. Perhaps “pressed into duty” is a bit misleading — Breslow made just two starts — but he was able to prepare as a starter for a few weeks, and in the final days of a lost season, that qualifies as noteworthy.

Breslow Shines In Start, Sox Shut Out O's Again, 8-0

(Getty Images)Well, we've been wrong before—and we are again on yesterday's Craig Breslow start. We thought it was a bad idea. In fact, the 35-year old lefty (making his first start ever) went four scoreless innings—handing off the rest of the 8-0 shutout to his bullpen buddies. Those buddies delivered five shutout frames. Boston got clutch hits from a bevy of players, most...

Breslow Is Realistic About His Return To Sox

(FenwayNation Photo)Craig Breslow is a wicked smart guy. After all, he went to Yale, you know. So, it's not really surprising that he's showing some dispassionate realism regarding a possible return to The Carmine Hose. The Red Sox will have five days after the World Series ends to pick up Breslow's $4 million option for 2015. In the words of Cosmo Kramer: "Not bloody likely". The...
