Red Sox’ Character Will Be Tested As Team Struggles Through Rough Patch (Video)

As someone who spent 19 years in the majors, Tim Wakefield knows that a 162-game season is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

All teams experience patches of adversity throughout the season-long grind, and Wake says that it’s when things aren’t going to plan that you discover the true character of a team. The Red Sox are falling into their first funk of 2013, as they have lost five of their last six games after jumping out to one of the best starts in franchise history.

Check out Wakefield’s take on the Sox’ recent struggles, plus a look at newly promoted Jose De La Torre, in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
