Report: Kaczur has 'significant' back injury

According to ESPN.com, Patriots offensive lineman Nick Kaczur has told teammates he has a significant back injury that could potentially sideline him for the entire 2010 season. The report states that Kaczur, who has been out of the Pats' last 11 training camp sessions, was slated to move from tackle to guard, could seek another medical opinion, but the prospects for a return any time soon remain "grim." Five-year veteran Dan Connolly has been lining up with the starting unit with both Kaczur and holdout Logan Mankins not available. For more Patriots coverage see the team page at weei.com/patriots.

Sox strike first: Buchholz beats Yanks

NEW YORK -- Clay Buchholz claimed his first career victory against the Yankees, allowing three runs on nine hits in 7 1/3 innings, leading his team past New York, 6-3. With the victory, the Sox moved within five games of he Yankees in the division, the closest they've been since the All-Star break.

 

Buchholz was touched early for a two-run homer by Mark Teixeira in the first inning, but the Sox quickly rallied back from three two-out runs in the top of the second. Jacoby Ellsbury drew a bases loaded walk, and Marco Scutaro lined a two-run double down the left field line against Yankees starter Javier Vazquez. After the Yankees rallied for a run in the bottom of the fifth, Ryan Kalish gave his club some breathing room by stroking a two-run homer to right-center, the first of his career.

 

The Yankees never again threatened, as Buchholz handed the baton directly to Daniel Bard (two outs) and Jonathan Papelbon, who threw a...

John Henry: Sox 'need another miracle'

Red Sox owner John Henry told Tom Krasovic of AOL FanHouse that amidst an "almost astonishing" run of injuries, his team will "need another miracle" if it hopes to overtake the Yankees or Rays to reach the postseason. Henry said that the Sox, if healthy, would have been well-positioned to compete against their AL East rivals, but that -- while not giving up hope for the 2010 season -- the catastrophic run of injuries to key players will be difficult to overcome.

 

Henry also defended outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from critics who suggested that he took too long to return from his broken ribs.

 

"No one should question his desire to compete," Henry wrote to Krasovic in an email. "In fact, he came back too soon initially. We didn't realize he was as badly hurt as he was. No one was...

Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.

Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
