Some people have a problem with Clay Buchholz going to a charity event? Really?

Clay Buchholz just got out of the hospital for esophagitis. Less than 24 hours later, the team has confirmed, he attended a charity event for The Greg Hill Foundation, which is designed to provide immediate assistance for families touched by tragedy.

Most people would probably view that as being pretty damn noble and, depending on how sick Buchholz still was, maybe even a little brave.


That’s a talk radio show in Boston which clearly has no desire to make a big deal out of this. I mean, they only decided to call it a “vodka-sponsored pool party” at a casino, without mentioning the charity aspect first. Which, in turn, predictably set the neanderfans loose:

And on and on. Never mind that he wasn’t drinking, his doctors had no problem with him doing normal activity as soon as he was released and resuming athletic activity within a couple of days. Seriously: people are attacking Clay Buchholz for ATTENDING A CHARITY EVENT.

David Ortiz went off the other day, talking about how much b.s. playing in Boston entails. This is exactly what he was talking about.

    Boston fans are moving up the scale of D (ouche) B (aggery) to right behind Phillies fans with crap like this. Sad.

    im gone disagree with both, i looked at this “charity” events website and to me it deosnt look liek either a vodka party or a chairty event, it just looks like some party to get rich people to donate to there charity, Buchholz didnt need to be there but nor, was he drinking vodka.. but also after the golf game with beckett they have reason to be concerned… he is doing good though so if i was them i wouldnt complain
