Are we sure Clay Buchholz will be the Game 4 starter?

Meanwhile at Fenway Park:

If this — which is still being described as “general arm fatigue” — doesn’t improve by Sunday, we may be looking at a Felix Doubront start. Or a bullpen game.

    Oh, that’s just GREAT. Not surprising though.

      Given the Cardinals relative lack of success vs. lefthanders this year, maybe not such a bad thing.

    Hard to believe he takes the mound Sunday night. It will be Doubront backed up by Workman and/or Dempster. Clay has been a 5 inning guy throughout this postseason and there’s little reason to believe he could give them even that much quality at this point. No fault to Clay, it just is what it is.

    I’ve been saying it all along….

    You will not see Clay pitch next year. He’s going to need surgery.

      Your glass isn’t half empty, it’s bone dry and stepped on.

        My attitude is a Jewish celebration?

      • theskinsman - Oct 25, 2013 at 4:00 PM

        Now THAT was funny. I believe it’s a Jewish Wedding tradition. Let’s hope whoever the hell pitches has his best outing of the season.

    Since he came back from injury his numbers in the regular season were good, but watching him then and in the postseason what you saw was a guy battling to go 5 innings. He has not looked like the same guy who was dominant before his injury.

      Isn’t it perfectly normal to be tired after you’ve just rested for 3 months?

      • APBA Guy - Oct 24, 2013 at 7:44 PM

        I hate to say he looks hurt, since the Sox have been adamantly denying it-but you can believe nothing any team says about the medical condition of their players these days, and he does not look right at all.

      • tfbuckfutter - Oct 24, 2013 at 8:07 PM

        I have been saying it all along, there is something seriously wrong with him that they are covering up or trying to avoid admitting.

        I don’t have any faith in the Red Sox trainers. No team has had as many TJ surgeries in the last few years than they have, and that includes a damn outfielder.
