2015 Rotation

What will the Sox starting rotation look like in 2015? That’s a difficult question. The “rehersal group” which now consists of Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Anthony Renaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and Brandon Workman has produced mixed results. At this point, Buchholz, despite his maddening inconsistency, Kelly and Renaudo seem to have the inside track. Renaudo, who had...

Webster 'Defines' Good Outing; Sox Win, 4-2
