As Tuesday morning broke just minutes after a late night Red Sox win, the thought of Clay Buchholz on the mound and all the questions surrounding him coming into this game seemed far away. Are we done with the rosin questions? Have we finished counting how many times Buchholz licks his fingers or wipes his hands on his pants? Perhaps you saw his breath showing up in the cool May air, or the icicles forming on the hair that he insists on wetting each inning (that is mere jesting, but it was a chilly night). While plenty of people out there would like to keep talking about where Buchholz has gotten his magical results in recent games, something much more pressing was happening Monday night. The Red Sox were in trouble. They were coming into town having lost three in a row, showing not only a horrid offense (just four runs scored over the weekend) but also an inability to make a dent against the American League’s real power teams. 20-11 looked a lot less beautiful considering the Red S...

MLB will be watching Buchholz closely tonight

Boston Red Sox Clay Buchholz’s ‘Mystery Cheating Substance’ Identified

Yahoo.com: Yahoo! Sports’ own Jeff Passan found out what Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz was putting on his arm recently. It wasn’t only rosin, as Buchholz claimed, and the reason it looks like sweat is because it goes on clear. And — depending on your definition of a spitball — it’s not something to help him throw illegal pitches, per se, as Toronto Blue...

Twins Monday: Buchholz hit, but Boston fights back

Boston's Clay Buchholz entered Monday's game against Minnesota as baseball's best pitcher so far this year. The Minnesota Twins must not have gotten the memo.

He also lasted just six innings, the shortest...

Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester Becoming Aces Again Has Led Red Sox Back Into Contender Conversation

The Red Sox are sitting pretty atop the American League East standings, and the early returns of this season suggest that they’ll be there to stay. Thanks in large part to the team’s top of the rotation, the Sox have been able to regain the form that made them top contenders in years past — and that they lost down the stretch in 2011 and never found during a lackluster 2012...

The Clay way

Clay Buchholz might not have had his best performance on the mound Monday night, but another Clay had a shot at redemption and may have earned a bigger spot in the bullpen.

Game 32: Twins at Red Sox - Welcome back home

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer If there is any silver lining to getting swept in Texas it’s that the Boston Red Sox (20-11) are coming home to play seven games against Minnesota (13-14) and Toronto (11-21). Sounds like just what the doctor ordered for the slumping Sox. Boston still holds a 1.5-game lead over New York (18-12) and Baltimore (19-13). Clay Buchholz goes for his...

Three things the Red Sox learned in Texas

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer U. G. L. Y. Yeah, it was that ugly over the weekend in Arlington, Texas. Red Sox starting pitchers gave up 12 runs in 14.2 innings, almost a run per inning. The Sox lineup scored just four runs, including being shut out in Game 1. So what all did that tell us? I’ve got you covered right here, right now. 1) Someone needs to step up behind Jon...
