From now until the All-Star break, there will be many intriguing storylines to follow around the Red Sox.
At the beginning of every season Phil Jackson would give his players a book to read that sent them a deep message about themselves and the season ahead. Today, I assign each of the Red Sox players a song as we inch closer to the 2013 season.
Better board the Red Sox bandwagon while it’s still at the station, folks.

The Cafardo mail bag is back! This week we discuss cutting Bobby V some slack, Clay Buchholz to the minors, and the absurd JC Linares bandwagon.
Last night, Tim Wakefield accomplished something no other pitcher ever has: he recorded his 8,329th out as a member of the Boston Red Sox. For those who are less than mathematically inclined (like myself), that’s 2,776 and 1/3 innings, one out more than Roger Clemens recorded with a B on his cap.
It’s a useful moment with which to reflect on the astonishing career of Tim Wakefield, and on what he has given this team both on the field and off. The longest tenured member of the Red Sox (Wake arrived in Boston as a free agent during the first month of the 1995 season, two years before anyone had heard of Nomar Garciaparra), Wakefield has been as selfless a player as has ever worn a Sox uniform. That he can arrive at this record is a testament to his loyalty, selflessness, and love of this game.
