BOSTON — Clay Buchholz was excellent in six-plus innings of work on Saturday. His night still ended prematurely, though.
Buchholz left Saturday’s start with two outs in the seventh inning because of neck stiffness. The right-hander said he started feeling discomfort following a play in the sixth inning in which a ball ricocheted off his glove.
“A little nagging there for a...
Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz could have his next start pushed back at least a couple days.
Buchholz, 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA this season, left his start Saturday in the seventh inning in the nightcap of a day-night doubleheader with what the team called ''neck tightness.''
Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Buchholz may not be ready to throw his...

Ortiz HR (FenwayNation Photo)Jarrod Saltalamacchia must have heard the rumors that the Red Sox were unhappy with this early season performance. The Boston catcher is now hitting a more than respectable .273 with 8 HRS after clouting two-round trippers on Sunday. Saltalamacchia hit a solo shot and a three-run blase as the Carmine Hose pounded Joe Blanton and the Angels, 10-5. Ryan...
The Red Sox brought in a number of free agents during the offseason. Josh Hamilton wasn’t one of them.
Hamilton, considered the biggest offensive free agent on the open market this past offseason, ended up signing with the Angels, but it wasn’t before tons of speculation about whether or not the 2010 American League MVP would land in Boston. Even David Ortiz thought there was...
Participating in the Home Run Derby is often a risky endeavor. It’s all about thrilling the fans, but there have been multiple instances of players struggling after taking part in the midsummer long ball contest.
That’s one of the reasons Mike Napoli, who has launched a few mammoth home runs this season, is a bit skeptical of participating in the competition if he is eventually...

In Major League Baseball there have always been great debates about star players from different teams. Some that immediately come to mind from the past are Joe DiMaggio or Ted Williams? Carlton Fisk or Thurman Munson? Hank Aaron or Willie Mays? Randy Johnson or Roger Clemens?
In this modern era we are in the players are bigger and stronger. There’s better nutrition, year...
