Sox and Dawgs:
Boston Red Sox
Toronto Blue Jays
After winning last night 5-0, the Boston Red Sox look to keep it going this afternoon the middle game of a three-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays at historic Fenway Park.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Blue Jays television market, you can catch the game on Rogers SportsNet. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network.
Clay Buchholz looks to stay undefeated in his eight start of 2013. In his previous seven starts, Buchholz is 6-0 with a 1.60 ERA. He's made one start in 2013 and picked up the win after allowing just two hits and no runs over seven innings back on May 1st. He's made 16 career appearances (15 starts) against the Jays and is 9-4 with a 2.42 ERA.
Mark Buehrle is also making his eighth start of 2013. In his previous seven starts, Buehrle is 1-2 with a 7.02 ERA. He took the loss in his l...
BEST OF MAXIM
I'm ready for this story to be over, along with everyone else except a couple of dumb ass Toronto radio personalities.
Clay Buchholz is saying he wasn't using sunscreen, though he has used it in the past, for sunny day games. You know, to be safe.
“I’ve used it in the past, but that wasn’t on my arm at any time this
season,’’ Buchholz said. “Day...
Clay Buchholz K/9 is definitely going to come back down to earth. His velocity hasn’t changed from last year, his SwStr% is around career norms, and he’s throwing fewer pitches in the zone.
However, Jack Moore over at FanGraphs writes:
So what’s new? Via last night’s Blue Jays broadcast, Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said Buchholz’s...
Clay Buchholz put the cheating accusations behind him and had a solid start against the Blue Jays on Saturday. The Red Sox Right-hander is 6-0 on the season with a 1.69 ERA.
Buchholz pitched through eight innings on Saturday, but her performance did not factor into the Sox’ 3-2 loss. After working through a grind the first few innings, Buchholz was able to turn a strong outing...
Wearing sunscreen at the ballpark is probably a good idea for fans and players. No need to risk melanoma when you're out there under the sun.
However, Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz allegedly has more in mind than protecting himself from skin cancer by applying sunscreen to his arms. More specifically, his left arm.
According to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan...
It does not look like you will need your sunblock at The Fens today. If the Red Sox are able to get the game in, it shapes up to be a good one.
It's Buchholz, the BullFrog and the Blue Jays part deux.
With their last lonely tear barely dry from getting spanked May 1, Clay Buchholz looks to tear through the Blue Jays lineup again. (Anyone notice...
Clay Buchholz will be taking the mound against the Blue Jays for the first time since Toronto analysts Dick Hayhurst and Jack Morris accused the Red Sox starter of cheating.
Buchholz enters the game with a 1.60 ERA and 1.026 WHIP. He has yet to lose in 2013.
Buchholz struggled in his last start compared to the righty’s start to the season. He allowed four runs in six innings,...
BOSTON — Following Clay Buchholz’s last start against the Blue Jays, a media firestorm ensued because of accusations made against the right-hander. Everything is back to being peachy, though.
Toronto broadcaster and former big league pitcher Jack Morris was among those who accused Buchholz of doctoring the baseball with a foreign substance located on his forearm during his start...
Yesterdays afternoon game was a good old fashion pitchers duel. Clay Buchholz faced off against Mark Buehrle and both pitchers dazzled. Buchholz was going for his 7th win in his 8th start and Buerhle was looking to improve to 2-2. Here are the 3 stars of the game:
Star 3: Adam Lind
Lind was one of the keys in Toronto's victory yesterday. He provided the run support that the...
Boy, was Jon Lester masterful Friday night or what? Now, Clay Buchholz needs to duplicate his performance (with or without sunscreen). The Boston Red Sox (22-14) go for their third series win against this Toronto Blue Jays (13-24) this season. Buchholz (6-0, 1.40 ERA) will be facing the Blue Jays for the first time since last week’s accusations...
Losers of six out of their seven, the Boston Red Sox try to finish a seven homestand on the right note with the Toronto Blue Jays, who come to Fenway Park for a three game weekend series. Boston has had early season success against the Blue Jays winning four of the first six meetings in 2013. In the 2012, the Red Sox went 2-7 vs. Toronto at home but were swept in the final two...
I guess they have to find something to whine about, whether the Red Sox are winning or if they start losing.
I find it rather boorish, don't you?
It is true that they are facing a bit of adversity in their pitching staff, that there was a collision that accounted for two players being banged up this week, and that the opposition has fallen to blaming Clay Buchholz for doctoring...
BOSTON — The Red Sox don’t really have a problem producing baserunners. Once guys get on base, though, things tend to become awfully difficult.
The Red Sox missed out on a ton of scoring chances on Friday, yet it became a footnote in a 5-0 win because Jon Lester was almost perfect. Clay Buchholz wasn’t as perfect on Saturday, and the Sox’ futility with runners on base ultimately...
12:40 p.m.: Jonny Gomes will be in the Red Sox’ starting lineup with left-hander Mark Buehrle on the hill. He’ll bat sixth and play left field.
There is a pretty big change to the Blue Jays’ lineup. Rajai Davis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique. Davis, who left Friday’s game, said the injury has been nagging him since earlier this week....

Jon Lester must watch Mad Men. He took the mound tonight for a team that had lost 6 of 7. Doubront is crumbling. The closers are on the DL. Fans are already losing faith. Clay Buchholz is being scrutinized for having a shiny arm. CBH is single-handedly shining the PED spotlight on David Ortiz. A clubhouse that a few days ago was surrounded in nothing...
