But in reality Clay Buchholz is leading the way for the Boston Red Sox early this season. Buchholz is one of 3 pitchers with 5 wins on the year and will be pitching for his MLB leading 6th victory on the season in 6 starts. In Buchholz's last start he pitched 7.2 innings against the Houston Astros allowing only 2 runs and 6 hits. He has pitched at least 7 innings every time he has gotten the ball this year and has given up only 2 earned runs twice. Tonight Buchholz gets the ball against Mark Buehrle, with the Red Sox losing yesterday it is a very important game for them to get back into the win column and be able to have a chance to win the series tomorrow. How do you think Buchholz will pitch tonight, does h...

Rapid React (5/2): Buchholz Dominant Again

Another day, another strong outing from Clay Buchholz. After shutting down Toronto to the tune of 7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 8 K/3 BB, Buchholz’s season ERA now sits at an incredible 1.01.

A second generation of idiots

They have pine tar on their helmets again, and there’s not a clean uniform in the bunch.
