BEST OF MAXIM
Clay Buchholz has become the best pitcher in the Red Sox rotation after years of disappointment
I never was a huge fan of Clay Buchholz. He started his Red Sox career with a no-hitter and every body who sort of followed the Boston Red Sox thought that they had an ace in the hole. Forget for a second that there have been plenty of middle of the road pitchers who have pitched no-hitters...
When Daniel Nava is presented with a new opportunity, he really goes all in.
Nava hit a grand slam against the Yankees on the first pitch he ever saw in the majors in 2010. On Monday, he capped off his first ever Fenway Park home opener with a game-winning, three-run home run against the Orioles.
Monday’s Opening Day heroics only add to the wild journey that is Nava’s career...
Daniel Nava hit a three run homer in the bottom of the seventh was all that Clay Buchholz needed as the Red Sox have won their third straight, beating the Orioles, 3-1.
It was a pitcher's duel between Buchholz and Wei-Yin Chen, as both of them only allowed a couple of singles and walks until the seventh when Dustin Pedroia started the rally with a single and Mike Napoli getting...
Daniel Nava hit a three-run homer, Clay Buchholz pitched seven shutout innings and the surprising Boston Red Sox won their ninth straight home opener, 3-1 over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday.
Nava broke open a scoreless duel between Buchholz (2-0) and Wei-Yin Chen (0-1) in the seventh inning with his second homer in two days. He hit a shot over the Green Monster in left after Dustin...

Jon Lester was the Red Sox’ Opening Day starter, and he’s considered the team’s ace in the minds of many. Clay Buchholz, the starter for Monday’s home opener, continues to match the southpaw step for step.
Buchholz tossed seven shutout innings against the Orioles on Monday. It marks the second straight outing Buchholz has gone seven innings, and he and Lester now hold a combined...
For a role player like Daniel Nava, confidence is key. Although initially shocked when he was told that he would start in Monday's home opener instead of rookie Jackie Bradley Jr., Nava said he had plenty of time to get his thoughts straight and focus on the goal:
“Of course it gave me confidence,” Nava said. “John and Torey have done a great job of communicating with...
Clay Buchholz followed Jon Lester‘s strong performance Sunday with seven shutout innings of his own Monday afternoon, which bodes well for the Red Sox’ starting staff this year.
After sputtering last season, the starters will now be under the tutelage of John Farrell in Boston, which many onlookers theorized would result in a return to form that the Sox badly needed. With John...
Jackie Bradley Jr. is getting some rest during the Red Sox’ home opener.
Daniel Nava will start in left field in Bradley’s place. It’s the fourth position Nava will have played this season. He’s already started games at designated hitter and first base. He also played two innings in right field. Nava is batting .400 with one home run, three RBIs and two walks.
The First Pitch
Paul Maholm and Clay Buchholz followed up solid season debuts with excellent second starts yesterday. They each went seven innings, allowed no runs and got a win. As a result, their ownership percentages are on the rise. But should you hop on the bandwagon and add them? Yes and no.
Yes to Maholm. He’s obviously going to give up some runs at some point, but...
The Red Sox just completed their first week of the season, a 6 game road trip starting in New York and ending in Toronto. The team went 4-2 on the trip and return to Fenway for a 7 game home stand against Baltimore and then Tampa Bay.
Wei-Yin Chen vs Clay Buchholz
Buchholz had a great outing in his first start of the season in the Bronx. He went 7 strong innings allowing...
