AL East Standings 4/24/15

It’s time to check back in with how the Sox are doing in the AL East Standings. Sure, the Red Sox are still in first place, but now they are sharing it with two other teams.  The Sox are in a three way tie for 1st place with the Blue Jays and the Yankees.  The Red Sox were able to split a 4 game series with the O’s and then they lost a series to the Rays.  The Sox are lucky...

Rick Porcello – Feeling the Pressure

The lack of an ace continues to dog the Red Sox rotation.. Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Clay Buchholz, and Justin Masterson all have 5.50- plus ERA’s, and Joe Kelly’s is over 4. The team does not seem to want to look outside the organization, at least for the present. According the the Globe’s Nick Cafardo, Cole Hamels will still command a high price-perhaps including Mookie...

Varvaro Is Latest Sox Hurler Implosion; Lose, 2-1

(AP  Photo)Another gut-wrenching loss at the pathetic MostPulpDome puts the Red Sox in a three-way first-place tie with the Yankees and Jays. The 2-1, ninth inning walk-off was due to—you guessed it—crap relief pitching (Anthony Varvaro). Clay Buchholz turned in a gem for six innings—giving up just one earned run on two hits while striking out ten. But, tonight, it was a lack...

This Video of Hanley Ramirez Eating a Snack Is The Highlight of Last Night’s Red Sox Game

Any night in which the Red Sox can only muster three hits and Allen Craig gets one of them is not gonna end well. So rather than dwell on how our lifeless bats wasted a fine Clay Buchholz outing, I’ll direct your attention to this vine of Hanley Ramirez eating a snack — the undisputed highlight of the evening. Look at the effortless form and precision with which he flicks the...

Rays Walk Off, Sox Lose First Series of the Season

The Red Sox came into this game hoping for a win in order to not have their first lost series of 2015.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound vs. Jake Odorizzi for the Rays.  Buchholz has been his usual inconsistent self this season, so fans wondered which version of Clay would take the mound.  Buchholz pitched well, but without any run support he was unable to get himself or...

Clay Buchholz was on top of his game Thursday night. The Boston Red Sox righthander allowed just two hits over six innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, surrendering one run while striking out 10 batters.

Orioles Take Second Game of Series

The Red Sox entered the game having taken the first game of the series and looking for more.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound who had one of the worst outing of his career in his last start vs. Chris Tillman for the O’s.  The Sox would go down early and then the O’s would put the game away in the late innings.  All in all, it wasn’t the Sox’s day.

Buchholz Pitches Better (Sort Of), Still Loses

(AP Photo)For the Red Sox to be 7-4 with inconsistent starting pitching and occasional offense is nothing short of a miracle. Both deficits were on display today as Clay Buchholz gave up 11 hits (and somehow only two runs) in six innings of spotty work and the offense eked out 7 hits (six from two players) in a 4-1 loss. David Ortiz and Brock Holt (of course) has three hits apiece...

Clay Buchholz: ‘No Excuse’ For Failing To Back Up Bases In Yankees Debacle

Clay Buchholz let his emotions get the best of him, and for that, the Boston Red Sox pitcher is sorry. Buchholz was under fire following his start Sunday night against the New York Yankees, not only for allowing nine earned runs in 3 1/3 innings, but also for his failure to back up bases following hits. More than once Buchholz stood in the middle of the diamond when he should have...

Red Sox Should Keep Clay Buchholz on a Short Leash

So we got to see what 2015 Clay Buchholz looked like against a lineup that is not the Philadelphia Phillies. Yikes. Most people were reasonable enough not to get themselves pumped up by Clay Buchholz’s Opening Day start in Philadelphia. In his first start of the season, Buchholz went seven strong innings, striking out nine while walking just one and allowing just three hits and...

Monday Links: After two starts, jurry remains out on Clay Buchholz

Photo credit: Kelly O’Connor For good reason, most Red Sox fans weren’t comfortable with the idea of Clay Buchholz heading the starting rotation in 2015. Over the course of his 9 year career, the right-hander has combated his flashes of greatness with injuries and under performance. Even when he was in the midst of his best season in 2013, the then-29 year old Buchholz couldn’t...

Tim Wakefield: Clay Buchholz Will Rebound, Pitch Well In Next Start (Video)

Clay Buchholz’s second outing of the season was less-than stellar. The Boston Red Sox right-hander shined in his Opening Day start against the Philadelphia Phillies, but it was a different story Sunday night at Yankee Stadium. The Yanks roughed Buchholz up to the tune of seven runs in the first inning as the Bronx Bombers handed the Red Sox a 14-4 loss. It was a bad start that...

Buchholz Gets Beat Up in Series Finale to Yankees

Last week Clay Buchholz looked like the Ace we might be waiting for, but last night he continued his inconsistent streak and was chased off the mound by the 4th inning.  Buchholz gave up 7 runs in the first inning and it was all downhill from there.  Tanaka was on mound for the Yankees and while he pitched well enough to win, he still looked like a question mark for the Yankees...

Welcome back to week two of our Daily Daily SP Rankings! Week one was as unpredictable an opening week as I can remember with this weekend’s games giving us a pair of blow-ups by Clayton Kerhaw and Madison Bumgarner, and a confusing pair of starts from Clay Buchholz that reaffirmed everything we thought we knew about him — he’s still Clay Buchholz. I’m not sure I’m more...

Red Sox Wrap: Clay Buchholz Roughed Up As Yankees Avoid Sweep With 14-4 Win

The Boston Red Sox are going to want to forget about this one. The New York Yankees smacked around Clay Buchholz right out of the gate Sunday at Yankee Stadium, lighting up the right-hander for seven runs in the first inning as the home team walked away with a 14-4 win. The night pretty much summed up Buchholz’s struggles with consistency, as his first...

Sox Lack 'Ace Of Diamonds', Fall To Empire 14-4

Maybe we have three number three starters and one number six starter. After being pummeled for ten runs by The Evil Ones, Clay Buchholz had better put those 'Ace' t-shirts on deep discount. The big righty put his teammates in an immediate hole on Sunday night—coughing up seven runs in the first inning. When the pathetically un-skilled Stephen Drew hits a home run off you, you know...

Anonymous scout trashes Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz

Clay Buchholz has been taking a lot of heat lately for a guy who is the top pitcher of a potential playoff team’s pitching staff.
