What do you consider hot? Do you think buffalo chicken wings are hot? Do you think Tabasco sauce is hot? Do you think banana peppers are hot?
Well I’ll tell you who’s hot right now. Clay Buchholz is on fire, almost as if every pitch he throws cuts the air. John Farrell said that Buchholz needed some adjustments, but he had to have made more than just a few.
The Red Sox have now won their third out of four series so far this year. Here are the four bases:
First Base: Hey Clay! What a day! The no-hitter bid was great, and so was the eight-inning effort. But the strikeouts? Man oh man. The 11 strikeouts in eight frames does not even tell the whole story. In the first half of the outing, he struck out eight batters in four innings. He has just given up one run in his 21 innings, a 0.41 ERA, and also now has 23 strikeouts.
Second Base: Just like Fireworks. Dustin Pedroia came into the game today with only two hits in 16 at bats, but the laser show’s three hits ramped up the show once aga...

It's been an exciting weekend for the Red Sox.
On the heels of yesterday's walkoff extra innings win, Clay Buchholz was a few outs shy of a no-hitter this afternoon in a shutout win over Tampa Bay. Buchholz went eight innings surrendering two hits (both in the 8th), behind 11 strikeouts. He did walk four, and as Jerry Remy pointed out near the end of the broadcast, in a...
Clay Buchholz was almost unhittable on Sunday.
Check that. Clay Buchholz has been almost unhittable this season.
Buchholz put hearts in throats on Sunday when he carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning of what was eventually a 5-0 Red Sox win. The bid for a no-no was broken up when Kelly Johnson led off the eighth with a broken-bat single into right field, but it hardly takes...
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz flirted with history on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately he fell short when Kelly Johnson singled in the 8th inning.
Had you bet on the game at Topbet mobile betting, you would have won had you bet on the Red Sox since Buchholz struck out a career-high 11 in a 5-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Check out the highlights from MLB.com....
With a 7-4 start, the Boston Red Sox are doing just about everything needed to make the fans forget the time frame from the September 2011 collapse through the disastrous 2012 season under Bobby Valentine. This weekend proved to be a microcosm of that goodwill, with the Bosox even coming out of a rainout Friday night with some positive press.In the past, the general feeling was...
BOSTON (AP) -- Clay Buchholz didn't allow a hit until Kelly Johnson's broken-bat single leading off the eighth inning, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Sunday.
Buchholz, who threw a no-hitter in just his second career start in 2007, allowed two hits and four walks in eight innings and struck out a career-high 11.
Johnson singled with an 0-1 count on...

April is a wacky month for baseball in Boston.
2012 brought record heat for the Red Sox’ Patriots’ Day game, but the days leading up to the 2013 Marathon Monday matinee have been far less balmy. Friday’s weather — which forced the Red Sox-Rays series opener to be postponed – was downright gross.
It’s difficult to determine when to cancel or suspend a game, though. While...
Its proving tough for teams to defeat both the 1 and 2 starters for the Boston Red Sox. Jon Lester who pitched yesterday and Clay Buchholz who pitched today have both been lights out. Buchholz got the run support he needed today and picked up his 3rd win of the season in his third start. After 2 games of in the series the sox have won both and can clinch a series win against the...
During Sunday's Red Sox-Rays game at Fenway Park a fan in attendance smoothly made a barehanded catch on a foul ball.
Check it out in GIF form, thanks to @CorkGaines (one of our favorite follows on Twitter), check out this "Like a Boss"-esque grab:
Also very impressive on Sunday at Fenway was Red Sox starting pitcher Clay...
11:45 a.m.: The big news coming out Sunday morning is in regards to closer Joel Hanrahan.
Hanrahan, who has struggled in his last three outings, is dealing with right hamstring soreness. He apparently tweaked his hamstring on a pitch during his second appearance of the year in New York.
Farrell described Hanrahan as “day to day,” and the club will look to let the issue settle...
Joel Hanrahan is still the closer, but for how long?
Red Sox manager John Farrell showed on Saturday that he’s not afraid to make a big-time decision when it comes to the late innings, and that means Hanrahan is very much on the hot seat going forward.
Farrell turned to Hanrahan in the ninth inning of a tie game on Saturday, but it wasn’t long before the skipper had seen enough...
It might not be long before the Red Sox send the struggling Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A Pawtucket, but manager John Farrell thinks the rookie has left his mark early on this season.
Despite Bradley hitting just .120 (3-for-25) through Boston’s first nine games, Farrell thinks the rookie played a major role in helping the team start off 5-4.
“He’s contributed in every area...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
David Ortiz was scheduled to play in his third game for the Pawtucket Red Sox, Sunday, slotted in to hit third for the PawSox. But prior to the game at McCoy Stadium against Rochester, the designated hitter...
