Wait? What? The Red Sox Won A Game?

The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone...

Clay Buchholz and the World’s Most Dramatic Umpire

Remember that guy named “Clay Buchholz” who was our single most effective pitcher out of the gate last season? That guy showed up again last night at Skydome, working 8 solid innings and giving up just 2 hits and no runs. Of course, once the ninth inning hit, we were hit with a sharp reminder that this is 2014, not 2013. After getting the first out, Clay let the next three batters...

Clay Buchholz’s Implosion Versus Angels Adds To Head-Scratching Season

BOSTON — The Clay Buchholz narrative could turn you blue in the face. Buchholz’s season has been a repetition of inhales and exhales — inhales when he takes the mounds, exhales when he doesn’t implode — for the Red Sox, as it’s nearly possible to predict which version of the right-hander will show up on a given night. There’s no denying Buchholz can be filthy when all...

Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Starting To Feel Like 2013 Version Again

BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox’s four-game winning streak ended in unusual fashion. The Red Sox fell to the Houston Astros 5-3 in 10 innings Friday at Fenway Park. Boston carried a 3-2 lead into the eighth inning, but Houston tied the game on a strange play. The Astros later grabbed a victory when Jake Marisnick blooped a two-run double down the right field line. The teams will...

Clay Buchholz Pitches Well, Earns No-Decision In Red Sox’s Loss To Astros (Video)

Clay Buchholz Looking To Build Confidence Amid ‘Baffling’ 2014 Season

Clay Buchholz’s 2014 season has been bad. Really bad. That being said, the Red Sox still view Buchholz as an integral part of their future, especially now that he’s the rotation’s elder statesman in light of Boston trading Jon Lester and John Lackey before last week’s Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. The real quandary, however, is that Buchholz’s season...
