Found May 10, 2013 on CLNS Radio:
  Losers of six out of their seven, the Boston Red Sox try to finish a seven homestand on the right note with the Toronto Blue Jays, who come to Fenway Park for a three game weekend series. Boston has had early season success against the Blue Jays winning four of the first six meetings in 2013. In the 2012, the Red Sox went 2-7 vs. Toronto at home but were swept in the final two home series against the Jays last season. Boston took two out of three from them last June 25-27. The bright spot for the Red Sox is that they will have their three best starters going in this series. Both Clay Buchholz and Ryan Dempster fared very well last week in Toronto each allowing one run or less to the Jays. It will be key for them to continue to pitch well if the Red Sox want to stay atop the AL East before hitting the road for a nine game road trip beginning on Tuesday. Pitching Matchups: 5/10 7:10 pm Ramon Ortiz (0-0) vs. Jon Lester (4-0 3.30 ERA) 5/11 1:35 pm Mark Buehrle (1-2 7.02 ERA) vs. Clay ...

Everybody's free to wear sunscreen, including MLB pitchers like Clay Buchholz

Wearing sunscreen at the ballpark is probably a good idea for fans and players. No need to risk melanoma when you're out there under the sun.  However, Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz allegedly has more in mind than protecting himself from skin cancer by applying sunscreen to his arms. More specifically, his left arm.  According to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan...

Game 37: Blue Jays at Red Sox - Buch 'em

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Boy, was Jon Lester masterful Friday night or what? Now, Clay Buchholz needs to duplicate his performance (with or without sunscreen). The Boston Red Sox (22-14) go for their third series win against this Toronto Blue Jays (13-24) this season. Buchholz (6-0, 1.40 ERA) will be facing the Blue Jays for the first time since last week’s accusations...

Red Sox’ Potent Offense Continues Strange Trend of Faltering With Runners on Base

BOSTON — The Red Sox don’t really have a problem producing baserunners. Once guys get on base, though, things tend to become awfully difficult. The Red Sox missed out on a ton of scoring chances on Friday, yet it became a footnote in a 5-0 win because Jon Lester was almost perfect. Clay Buchholz wasn’t as perfect on Saturday, and the Sox’ futility with runners on base ultimately...

Pitches Of The Week: Darvish everything, Kershaw/Wainwright curves, Buchholz “cheating”

Yu Darvish has decent stuff. —– Josh Donaldson nearly blew out his ACL bailing on this Rick Porcello curve —– Clayton Kershaw‘s curve is a regular here for a reason. Ditto to Adam Wainwright‘s curve. Bartolo Colon is still pitching and he can still do it well. I would accuse Clay Buchholz of cheating too. Hyun Jin Ryu‘s slider is becoming his second plus pitch...

Red Sox-Blue Jays Live: Ryan Dempster, Sox Look to Finish Homestand Strong in Rubber Match Against Jays

11:30 a.m.: David Ortiz started the season like a house on fire, hitting .500 (18-for-36) with three home runs and 15RBIs in nine April games. He has struggled of late, though, hitting just .179 (7-for-39) in May. Ortiz will get the day off on Sunday, which is a move designed to get the slugger back-to-back days off — the Red Sox have an off day on Monday. That means Mike Napoli...
