BOSTON (CBS) – Adam Kaufman is back for another edition of “5 Questions,” this time joined by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Ryan Johnston of Johnston & Flynn.
With the Red Sox set to open a four-game set with the New York Yankees, the duo leads off with the boys of summer. With the All-Star break approaching, Dustin Pedroia is likely heading to the DL with a thumb injury. Although the Sox will get some guys back in Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury, is Boston in trouble when the unofficial second half begins?
Moving to the Celtics, it seems as though Danny Ainge is getting the band back together. KG and Brandon Bass have already re-signed, Jeff Green is reportedly close to doing the same, and the team is still hoping Ray Allen doesn’t leave for Miami. With the addition of Jason Terry, how have the Celtics done this off-season so far?

As for Boston’s other winter team, the Boston Bruins reportedly made a “serious” offer to Zach Parise, who signed with the Minnesota Wild. Was there really a big offer from the B’s or was it all just to get a little media attention?
Speaking of attention, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been getting plenty of it. He appeared on a dating show Thursday night, and seems to always be having a good time whenever pictures or videos of him hit Twitter. Is this too much for Gronkowski, who is recovering from ankle surgery?
And for this week’s “Wild Card” question, Kaufman and Johnston head back to NBA Free Agency. There have been plenty of big names changing teams, but who is really improving?
Ryan Johnston breaks it all down with Adam Kaufman on this week’s edition of “5 Questions.”
