Clay Buchholz and Toradol

The Gordon Edes story on ESPN.com has stuck in this observer's craw for a day now. Edes' report mentions that Clay Buchholz has foregone the use of pain relievers since his bout of esophagitis that landed Buchholz in the hospital for internal bleeding.

Red Sox Live Blog: Clay Buchholz Returns to Sox, Jacoby Ellsbury Looks to Find Flow Against Rays

8 a.m. ET: Clay Buchholz is set to return to the mound for the Red Sox on Saturday night, after missing the past few weeks with a case of esophogitis.

Rays look to All-Star Price to stop rival Red Sox

Pedro Ciriaco may be the latest revelation for the Boston Red Sox, but David Ortiz isn't surprised. David Price's success on the mound for the Tampa Bay Rays isn't at all surprising. Ciriaco and Ortiz look to continue their respective hot stretches at the plate as the Red Sox face Price and the Rays on Saturday. Ciriaco is 10 for 16 with two doubles, six RBIs and three...

Adrian Gonzalez Injures Back as Jacoby Ellsbury, Clay Buchholz Return (Video)

Just as the Red Sox were getting oh-so close to relative health, Adrian Gonzalez had to go an injure his back in the most bizarre way possible. It seems like Murphy's Law, doesn't it?

Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz Hold Key to Second-Half Success for Red Sox (Video)

The vaunted Big Three of the Red Sox starting rotation hasn't exactly set the world on fire so far this season. With the struggles and inconsistencies of Josh Beckett (4-7, 4.43 ERA), Jon Lester (5-6, 4.49) and Clay Buchholz (8-2, 5.53 ERA), it's no wonder that the Red Sox are a mere one game over .500 after Friday's 3-1 win over the Rays. But the three possess just as...

You remember the story about David Price having to leave a spring training game because of neck spasms that were cause by toweling off too hard, right?
