He may or may not end up as the "leader" of the 2015 Red Sox rotation, but Clay Buchholz took a big step in that direction with a clever little move at camp. The tall righty had five t-shirts made up with the name and number of the each of the five starters on the back. But that's not the good part. On the front of each shirt is the inscription, "He's the ACE". Brilliant. Said Buchholz...
