Clay Buchholz Hopes To Be Final Pitcher Derek Jeter Ever Faces In MLB

Clay Buchholz has a chance to be the last pitcher Derek Jeter ever faces in Major League Baseball. Buchholz is scheduled to pitch the Boston Red Sox’s final game of the season Sept. 28 against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park. The contest will mark the final game in Jeter’s illustrious career, meaning there’s some extra incentive for Buchholz, who grew up idolizing the Yankees...

Buchholz Struggles As Sox Lose 2 in a Row to Pirates

The Red Sox were hoping to play spoiler down the stretch to teams still in search of a post season berth, but in order to do that they would have to actually win games down the stretch.  The Sox lost the first game of the series and then with Clay Buchholz on the mound lost another game.  Buchholz had had a few strong outings in a row, but last night would not be among them. ...

Red Sox Walk The Plank In Pittsburgh; Lose, 9-1

(Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)The term "Garbage Time" was invented for games like these. In fact, September should be re-named "Garbage Month" for your Carmine Hose. Last night, Clay Buchholz reverted to his bad earlier form—getting pummeled by the Pirates, 9-1. The tall Texan went just four miserable innings—giving up six hits and four earned runs...

Red Sox Dumped One Carp, Looking At Another

Carp-To-Carp WalletingAccording to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (the boring broadsheet now owned by John Henry), the Red Sox may be in the hunt for Hiroshima Carp pitcher Kenta Maeda. The righthander will be available on the international market in November, and Boston (in need of two starters) will likely put up the $25 million posting fee. They will also explore trades with...

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...

Clay Buchholz’s Fourth Consecutive Strong Outing Has Red Sox Pleased (Video)

Things definitely are taking a turn for the better for Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. At the end of May, the ace’s ERA was hovering over seven. In his last four starts, however, Buchholz is 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA and 22 strikeouts.

Buchholz wins 3rd straight, snaps Sox skid

There's not enough time for Clay Buchholz to put lipstick on this pig of a season and make it look good. Same with the last-place Boston Red Sox, who have followed their World Series championship with a real stinker of a year. There is time, however, for the veteran right-hander to leave 2014 on a high and optimistic note and perhaps make the Red Sox think twice before rushing...

Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Giving Reason To Be Optimistic About 2015

It was the Kansas City Royals — not the Boston Red Sox — who looked like the last-place team Thursday. The Red Sox defeated the Royals 6-3 in the opener of a four-game series at Kauffman Stadium.

Top 5 Off-Season Moves The Sox Need To Make

As Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner reveals today that the NOG will spend heavily in the off-season, here are our Top Five Off-Season Moves the team needs to make:1.) Get two front-line starting pitchers.

End of season post-mortem: Boston Red Sox

Following up a World Series title with another championship would be a difficult task for any team. But so many things went right for the Red Sox in 2013 — with several players having seasons unlikely to be repeated — that it was difficult to imagine circumstances being so favorable for them this year. The task was even more daunting with the Orioles and Yankees improving themselves...

The Red Sox put up solo tallies in the first four innings—paced...

Red Sox-Blue Jays: Clay Buchholz Battles Jays, Mother Nature At Fenway

Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Keeps Standing Out Amid Boston’s Auditions

Clay Buchholz brought the good stuff Sunday. Buchholz, whose season has been marred by inconsistency, tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout in the Boston Red Sox’s 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The right-hander needed just 98 pitches. Sunday’s victory was a nice bounce-back effort for Boston after Saturday’s disappointing loss, in which the Red Sox’s...
