Clay Buchholz

  1. Red Sox’s turnaround more about incumbents than newcomers

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:15 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox v San Francisco Giants

    We’ve heard it a million times now: the Red Sox changed the clubhouse culture for the better when they brought in Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Ryan Dempster over the winter. And that’s certainly true. I imagine this has been the best Red Sox team to cover in several years, and they do,…

  2. The Red Sox beards are magical or something

    Sep 16, 2013, 11:09 AM EST

    Jonny Gomes, Jackie Bradley Jr., Shane Victorino

    I’ve noticed the Red Sox’ beards for a while now. Haven’t said much about them because I was waiting to see if there was some higher purpose to them beyond team bonding and image-crafting. Maybe some charitable thing? Maybe solidarity with a friend or fan suffering from some illness? I don’t know. Stuff happens and…

  3. Clay Buchholz is one win away from unbeaten history

    Sep 16, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    I’m not much for pitcher win-loss records, but this is still kind of neat. Yesterday Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz tossed six innings of one-run ball against the Yankees, improving to 11-0 with a 1.51 ERA on the season. Buchholz has been limited to just 14 starts because of injuries, but he’s one win away…

    Mariano Rivera was honored Sunday prior to his last ever regular-season appearance at Fenway Park. The Red Sox made sure that was the only time he’d see the mound all weekend. The Red Sox shook off a first-inning Yankees run with three of their own and routed the Bombers 9-2 for a three-game sweep in…

    CC Sabathia AP

    Coming off a loss last night, the Yankees needed the vintage CC Sabathia or a reasonable facsimile to show up this afternoon against the Red Sox. It didn’t happen. Sabathia was touched up for five runs on nine hits and four walks over six innings as part of a 5-1 loss. After beginning the afternoon…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  9. Ringolsby: Jorge De La Rosa worthy of Cy Young consideration

    Sep 7, 2013, 8:30 PM EST

    Jorge De La Rosa

    Rockies lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa is worthy of Cy Young consideration, argues Tracy Ringolsby in his latest column on MLB.com. My initial reaction to the article was that he was intentionally exaggerating to make a point, but he has covered the Rockies for a while, so maybe he legitimately believes this. Ringolsby writes:…
