Sorry about the pic of J.D. Drew. It is just instinct to post a photo of Drew when I hear of a hamstring injury. I have to shake that old habit. It seems as if the luck of the Celtics has already rubbed off on the Red Sox, as Clay Buchholz injured his right hamstring on the first day of pitching workouts. Farrell said the team will know more Wednesday but added, “it was enough to get him off the field.” Farrell said the strain was in the middle of his right hamstring and was in the “best possible” area for recovery, away from his buttocks and knee. Farrell said Buchholz will receive “several treatments” daily in an effort to get him back on the field as soon as possible. Buchholz said that he’s “hopeful” that the injury is not serious, since trainers told him it was a strain and not a pull. Buchholz said he doesn’t expect to miss any spring training starts. Unlike the fate of the recent C's players to go down, this is most a precautionary measure. The rotation is getting enough criticism, I can't imagine what the nay-sayers would be saying if this injury were more severe. Little tweaks happen all the time during spring training and this seems like one of them. As long as no one is downplaying the injury, there should be no cause for worry.
