The Case For Trading Clay Buchholz

Earlier this week Brad wrote an excellent article that addressed the recent Clay Buchholz trade rumors, in which he argued that the Red Sox should keep the mercurial starter. While Brad made a well-reasoned case, I would like to play devil’s advocate and outline a case for trading Buchholz, in an attempt to cash in […]

Red Sox Front Office Should Not Look to Trade Clay Buchholz

As the trade deadline approaches the rumors have begun to swirl rapidly. The most recent whispers have circled around pitcher Clay Buchholz. This season has been a roller coaster for the eight-year veteran; while he has shown flashes of brilliance, he has also pitched very poorly on many occasions. In a year when the Red Sox […]

The Newest Four-Letter Word for the Red Sox: Hope

The 2015 Season for the Boston Red Sox has been defined by the latest tirade of four-letter words inspired by Rick Porcello’s latest pitching performance, Pablo Sandoval’s ninth inning fielding percentage, or any other seminal moment of disappointment. There are a lot to choose from. But lately, strangely, I’ve been finding myself coming back to […]

The Red Sox Trade Deadline Playbook

With the trade deadline a mere month away and the Red Sox in the basement of the American League East, the front office finds themselves in a precarious position. The Red Sox are sitting nine games under .500, but nonetheless are not out of the playoff picture. The question Red Sox Nation ponders is: where do […]

Red Sox Stand Tall, Take Five Out of Seven at Fenway

The Red Sox took care of business at home by winning five out of seven games during the home stand. This coming after a tough stretch on the road where the Minnesota Twins swept them in a three game set, after which they lost three out of four to the Texas Rangers. During this trip the […]

Rusney Castillo Has Key Knock, Flashes Leather to Push Red Sox Past Twins

After a dismal few weeks on the road the Red Sox returned to Fenway and picked up a much needed win behind a dominant eight-inning performance from Clay Buchholz, who allowed just three hits, eight Ks, and most importantly, no earned runs. Buchholz, now with a 3.82 ERA, was finally given some run support in the seventh inning. […]

Clay Buchholz Has an ERA Under 4.00 (BREAKING NEWS)

This is a breaking news update. Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz now has an ERA under 4.00.

You Know the Red Sox Suck When…

It seems we Red Sox fans are all waiting for the other shoe to drop: for GM Ben Cherington to make that all-in trade to improve the pitching staff, for the offense to start hitting, for the Red Sox to start winning, for God’s sake. But have we ever stopped to consider that the Red Sox […]

Red Sox Weekly Round Up: Starting Pitching Continues to be Woeful

I’ve done my absolute best to be optimistic about this pitching staff. Of course we all know how unproven the entire rotation was coming into this season, but it seemed like the five of them would be able to put it together. Each pitcher has had success in the past and the thought was they […]

Will the Real Clay Buchholz Please Stand Up?

One inning.That’s all it took for the New York Yankees to pile on seven runs, for the Boston Red Sox to throw away a potential sweep, and Clay Buchholz to undo the narrative of an overachieving and underestimated Red Sox starting rotation after one turn through. This came one turn after shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies […]

Red Sox Weekly Round Up: Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz Shine Early

After the most brutal winter in the history of Boston, the start of a new season of Red Sox baseball is just what we needed. The temperature is finally rising and there is legitimate buzz surrounding this team. Thanks to the additions of high-profile free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, the young players like […]

Red Sox Kick Off 2015 Season with Buchholz as “Ace”

Summer is coming. The 2015 Major League Baseball season kicked off Sunday night, and the Boston Red Sox will follow Monday afternoon with their season opener against the Philadelphia Phillies. As exciting as the prospect of real, regular season baseball season is (this is me for the past week), the Red Sox starting pitching situation is […]

Red Sox 2015 Preview: Buchholz, Porcello, Miley, Masterson, Kelly

The Boston Red Sox starting rotation lacks the star power that the 2015 lineup bolsters, but it does provide a sort of lack of depth that was not there in the 2014 season. The starters should be able to eat up innings while also being durable from whoever the “ace of the staff” is to […]

Buchholz and Uehara: A Tale of Two Pitchers

The Red Sox have decided to treat the remainder of the 2014 regular season like Spring Training, auditioning many of its players for next season.  Two of those players are pitchers Clay Buchholz and Koji Uehara. Clay Buchholz Buchholz is known to run hot or cold during any given season. There does not seem to be a […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? David Ortiz Poised to Top the Record Books

10 games and counting. That is all that is left in this abomination of a season for the Boston Red Sox. This is my #100happydays submission — that 2014 is kindly petering out and I can start looking forward to next season. But unfortunately, there are still games left and I can’t distract myself with […]
