CLAY BUCHHOLZ NEWS

Say Goodbye to Bucky

I’m sure Clay Buchholz is a good and decent man. He appears to be happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. He does a lot of charity work. He has never been considered a clubhouse distraction. I have come to the conclusion, however, that this should be his last year with the Red Sox, no matter what happens to Jon Lester. The ups and downs of Buchholz’s career are well-documented...

Sox Get Pummeled in Series Opener with the Jays

The Red Sox keep finding new and even more horrible ways to lose games.  The only real glimmer the Sox has had in the last week or so was the epic offensive beat down they had on the Jays in the series opener up in Toronto.  Well it looks like the Jays wanted to give the Sox a taste of their medicine in completely destroying the team last night on way to a devastating 14-1 loss...

Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Trends In Wrong Direction In ‘Ugly’ Loss

BOSTON — What a difference a week makes. Exactly one week after the Red Sox defeated the Blue Jays 14-1 at Rogers Centre, Toronto returned the favor at Fenway Park. The Jays pounded 14 hits Monday en route to a 14-1 beatdown of the Sox. Nothing went right for Boston in the series opener. The Red Sox’s pitching was bad and their offense struggled, which never is a productive combination...

Red Sox Tickets 3.6% Below Average For Series Vs Jays

The struggling Boston Red Sox welcome the Toronto Blue Jays to Fenway Park for three games this week. While the chance to repeat as World Champions this year is a pipe dream for the Red Sox, the Blue Jays sit in second place in the AL East and will hope to gain ground on the first place Orioles, who control the division by just three games.  The Red Sox schedule will see the team...

Red Sox Pregame Notes 7/24/14 It's an early game today!

Toronto, ON- When is it going to end? Will the REAL Red Sox team stand up? After winning 8 of 9 and looking to scratch their way back to being relevant, Boston lost their second in a row to Toronto. Although David Ortiz is delivering on his promise to heat up, it's getting pretty chilly in the rest of the Boston dugout. Pitching hasn't helped that much either, as Clay Buchholz...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Week 17 Free Agent Fixes

With a few closers rumored to be on the trading block, a trio of relievers get the nod this week as worthwhile adds in fantasy leagues. They are joined by a starting pitcher who looks to be rounding back into form since his activation from the disabled list, a third baseman changing leagues and greatly upgrading ballparks, and an outfielder thrust into an injury riddled lineup. Clay...

Buchholz "Walks" His Way Into A 6-4 Loss

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)Well, The Carmine Hose pretty much have to sweep the rest of this road trip (one more afternoon tilt in America Lite and three more at the MostPulpDome in Tampa) to have any realistic chance at the post-season. Clay Buchholz put one nail in the 2014 coffin with six lifeless innings in which he surrendered 3-0 and 4-3 leads. He coughed up five...

Sox Let the Game Slip Away

The Red Sox has numerous opportunities to win the game yesterday, but they just kept giving it back to the Jays until they took the lead for good and rode to victory.  Buchholz got an early lead, but then gave it right back in the early inning.  The Sox took the lead again in the later innings, but then Buchholz once again gave it right back to the Jays.  If the Sox are going...

Clay Buchholz, Red Sox Victims Of Blown Opportunities In Loss To Blue Jays

Clay Buchholz was far from at his best Wednesday night, but there were oh-so-many moments in the Red Sox’s 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays when he should not have had to be. There was the top of the fourth inning, when the Red Sox put runners on second and third base with no outs, only to come away without a single run. There was Xander Bogaerts’ throwing error in the sixth, which...

Red Sox: Sox start strong, falter late, lose to Jays 6-4

In what was a promising start to the contest, the Red Sox lost 6-4 to the Blue Jays Wednesday night at Rogers Centre in sloppy fashion. Clay Buchholz' command abandoned him at times, the defense gifted the Jays runs, and the bats provided little resistance late as the Sox failed…

Whatever Happened to Felix Doubront?

The answer to this question is easy. He is buried in the Sox bullpen. When the season began, the 26-year-old Venezuelan was listed as the number 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy. But after a poor start and the emergence of Brandon Workman and Rubby DeLa Rosa (and later return of Clay Buchholz) he was exiled to the pen in the notorious spot of “long reliever”...

Clay Buchholz Trying To Limit Walks In Second Half Of Season (Video)

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz knows that giving up walks to teams with powerful lineups often results in failure. Buchholz has displayed remarkable control over the last month, surrendering just one walk in his last five starts. In his most recent outing — a 5-4 Boston win over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night — the veteran right-hander gave up zero walks en route...

Jonny Gomes is Clutch Once Again in Sox Win!

Clay Buchholz had the dubious distinction of having “back to back” starts due to the All Star Break.  Buch pitched wonderfully before the break and hoped to continue that trend. Buchholz gave up a solo run in the 1st inning,  but the Sox got it right back for him in the bottom of the 1st by way of a Brock Holt RBI.  Buchholz kept trucking along until he got himself in a little...

Red Sox Notes: Jonny Gomes’ Magic On Display As Boston Starts Rolling

BOSTON — The Red Sox started the second half with a bang. The Red Sox rallied from a three-run deficit Friday to defeat the Kansas City Royals 5-4 at Fenway Park. Xander Bogaerts and Jonny Gomes hit a pair of two-run homers in the sixth inning to propel Boston to victory. There was a lot to like about Friday’s win from a Red Sox perspective. Boston now has won five of its last...

Clay Buchholz Has Tall Task Of Striking Out Kansas City Royals (Video)

The Houston Astros strike out a lot. The Kansas City Royals don’t. Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz struck out 12 Astros on Sunday, but don’t expect him to do the same when he takes the mound against Kansas City on Friday. The Royals’ batters have struck out less than any team in the MLB with 553 strikeouts on the season. They also have the fifth-most hits of...

Clay Buchholz Looks To Keep Rolling As He Opens Second Half Against Royals

The 2014 season has been a strange one filled with plenty of disappointment for Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. However, the right-hander may have turned a corner and will look to continue his recent hot streak on Friday night. Buchholz will get the ball in the Sox’s first game out of the All-Star break. Coincidentally, it will mark Buchholz’s second game in as many Red...

Good second-half club? Royals can start proving it at Boston

It's been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals made the playoffs -- a drought they're determined to end with some slight improvements in the second half. That goal seems far more realistic than Boston's chances of reaching the postseason and defending its title, but the Red Sox haven't written off their season just yet. James Shields takes the mound for the Royals...
