Clay Buchholz has a hamstring tear

Jun 28, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

The Red Sox’ Clay Buchholz, who was originally reported to have hyperextended his knee, has been diagnosed with a minor lower hamstring
tear
.  He’s still confident that he’ll make his next start, but that doesn’t seem bloody likely, now, does it? I mean, sure, I’m not a doctor, but “torn hamstring” sounds simply icky, no?

Now, come over here and let me look at the lump on your neck. I’m sure I can tell you what it is . . .

    A pulled or strained hamstring is a hamstring tear, too. I assume its a mild strain.

    If they’d have said Buchholz has a “pulled hammy,” I assume you’d have a different opinion. But, it would be nonetheless a “tear” just as much.

    Even with a pulled hammy, it’s pretty difficult to pitch effectively. Hell, do anything that requires full extension of the hamstring.
