ClayEvery morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

According to a Red Sox team source, pitcher Clay Buchholz attended a charity event at Foxwoods Resort and Casino on Wednesday night — less than 24 hours after being released from the hospital for esophagitis. While the event — the WAAF Celebrity Golf Tournament, a fundraiser for The Greg Hill Foundation — did feature a pool party sponsored by Stoli Vodka, the source said that Buchholz did not have anything to drink at the event.

After he was released from the hospital and it was determined that he would not travel with the Red Sox to the West Coast for their upcoming series in Seattle, Buchholz agreed to a friend’s request to take part in the charitable event. The Greg Hill Foundation describes its mission as response “to immediate requests for assistance, to improve the lives of local families touched by tragedy, through matching the charitable donation of Greg’s media audience.”

Buchholz was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday due to a gastrointestinal bleed. He spent five days in the hospital, during which he said he became faint while standing. However, with his release, Buchholz said that he felt fine with normal activity, and he had been told that his ability to deal with more demanding (and athletic) forms of activity would return within a few days.

WEEI: Clay attended charity event on Wednesday

Radio shows on both WEEI & 98.5 The Sports Hub have already picked this apart and Michael Felger surely is looking to tear this apart... but this isn't anywhere close to the Beckett and golfing issue.

He's already on the DL, the team is en route to Seattle, and all he did was show up. No drinking, no jumping in the pool, none of that. All he did was go and enjoy himself and after being couped up in a hospital, why not go and blow some steam?

Plus, he already went to the clubhouse to see how his teammates are doing. So unless there are some photos of Clay Buchholz pounding down shots while still having his hospital tag on his wrist, let's just leave this one alone.
