Clay Buchholz has been so bad this season, going 5-7 with a 6.20 ERA after going 12-1 with a 1.74 ERA last year, that the 29-year-old right-hander and Red Sox manager John Farrell are both being asked if he’s healthy or pitching through an injury.

Two days ago Felix Doubront talked at length about how he wants to be back in Boston’s rotation following a demotion to the bullpen and, if the Red Sox aren’t willing to use him as a starter again, he wants to be traded.

A three run lead and Rafael Soriano on the hill usually leads to an un-tuck fest. Not last night it didn’t.

The last baseball that counts for a few days. Enjoy it, folks.

It’s been unusual for Uehara to run into any trouble so his posting a 5.14 ERA in eight outings has been a strange sight.

Tim Lincecum’s no-hitter reminded me of something.

Clay Buchholz struggled in his first minor-league rehab start last week, but fared much better this afternoon by tossing six shutout innings at Triple-A Pawtucket.
Jun 16, 2014, 4:53 PM EDT
Clay Buchholz had a shaky first minor-league rehab start Saturday at Triple-A, allowing three runs in 4.2 innings, and today the Red Sox announced that he’ll make at least one more start in the minors before coming off the disabled list.

It may have happened Monday. Still not sure what happened the previous several starts before that . . .
May 27, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT
Whether he’s hurt or merely lost, Clay Buchholz is not helping the Red Sox at all right now.

After a rough start to his big league career, George Springer has sprung.
May 26, 2014, 6:32 PM EDT
The Red Sox dug out of an early hole this afternoon to snap their 10-game losing streak.

He still probably performed better than the guy calling the balls and strikes.

If your local talk radio host is frothing at the mouth over Michael Pineda today he is being willfully ignorant of baseball’s approach to doctored baseballs.

If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?
Apr 10, 2014, 8:49 PM EDT
You be the judge.

Ryan Dempster posted a disappointing 4.57 ERA in 171 1/3 innings last summer for the Red Sox and did not get a postseason start, but he was still expected to open the 2014 campaign in Boston’s rotation. That is no longer going to happen. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the veteran right-hander announced Sunday…

I couldn’t even begin to tell you whether Terry Francona was a more deserving Manager of the Year candidate than John Farrell. No one has ever explained to me some basis for comparing managers that makes choosing that award anything close to a clear or objective process. There are far more moving parts to a…

With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…
