David Ortiz Holds Lead in DH All-Star Voting While Rangers Continue to Dominate Ballots

With less than one month to go until players take the field for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, voting is beginning to heat up for players in the American League. The Red Sox have done better in terms of All-Star voting in previous years, but thankfully, at least one familiar face seems to be destined for Kansas City. David Ortiz widened his lead in voting as designated hitter with 1...

Recap: Buchholz plays stopper as Sox snap skid

The Red Sox ended their losing streak with a 2-1 win behind the arm of Clay Buchholz in Miami. Buchholz went seven strong innings, scattering five hits and one walk against nine strikeouts. His lone run was a Logan Morrison homer in the 7th, but Clay was able to finish off the Marlins and close out the inning. The Sox scored their runs in the top of the 7th from some unlikely characters...

Buchholz Keeps Simple Frame of Mind in Successful Run (Video)

Clay Buchholz has been dealing lately, one of the few bright spots in a very rough stretch for the Red Sox. Once again Tuesday, the club turned to Buchholz to change their fortunes in the midst of a losing streak, and the 27-year-old delivered when the team dearly needed him to. The Sox' offense is still very much mired in a funk -- one that can't be blamed on spacious Marlins...

Some of the other queries were more baseball related, including how the Red Sox go about preparing for those pesky Washington Nationals starting...

Clay Buchholz' Inspiring Transformation Continues to Build Character for Red Sox

Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine’s words. Each game day, we will select the best Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. Clay Buchholz isn't making the AL All-Star team this year. He won't be winning any awards. And he likely won't even be appreciated for his contributions to a middling Red Sox...

Red Sox Pitching Success Keeping Offense Afloat Through Struggles (Video)

Clay Buchholz impressed yet again on Tuesday night, tossing seven strong innings and willing the Red Sox to their first win in five games. Buchholz, Felix Doubront and other members of the Boston pitching brigade have proven pretty consistent as of late.

Taking Stock: Nationals - Red Sox series

After every series, we'll take stock of how each individual and group performance affects their overall value. Lineup Daniel Nava: One good game, (and "good" is used loosely) and one poor game. 2-for-5 with an RBI is pretty good, but add in 3 K's it doesn't look so good now. I'll cut him some slack this time. Dustin Pedroia: a 3-for-13 is not what Pedey...

What You Need to Know: Wednesday, June 13 by Daniel Rathman

The Tuesday Takeaway Yesterday’s takeaway from the series between the Red Sox and the Marlins in Miami was Josh Johnson’s return to form. After Tuesday’s 2-1 Boston victory, perhaps the same can be said of Clay Buchholz. The 27-year-old Buchholz was dreadful from the start of the season through May 21.

Consistency From Pitching Staff is Key o Red Sox' Success the Rest of the Way

The Red Sox aren't used to this. It's June, and the Sox are currently sitting in last place of the American League East with a record below .500, which is uncharted territory for a team that has finished third or better in the division every year since 1997. Injuries have decimated the Red Sox' lineup, but that hasn't slowed down the offense much. Boston currently...
