POLL: Most Want To Keep Buchholz At Deadline

Very early voting in our latest FenwayNation Poll indicates a preference to keep Clay Buchholz at the trade deadline. As the chart shows, more than six in ten readers (61%) think the Red Sox should not trade the Texas righty, while just under four in ten (39%) think the team should take advantage of his current high value and deal him.

Buchholz Deliver A Beauty, Sox Top Jays, 3-1

(Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP) Look up 'enigma' in the dictionary, and there will likely be a picture of Clay Buchholz. At once, the most talented (sometimes) and frustrating (nearly all the time) starter in the last decade, Buchholz put on a show last night. Going eight strong innings, he gave up just one earned run in Boston's 3-1 win over Toronto. Buchholz used his entire four-pitch arsenal to stymie one of the most prolific offenses in all of baseball. On the offensive side, the first three hitters in the Boston order were dynamic—Mookie Betts went 2-4 and scored two runs,...

Hey, Clay needs to stay

TORONTO — Trade Clay?No way.OK, before we go any further, there hasn’t been any indication from team officials that the Red Sox are thinking much about dealing Clay Buchholz before the trade deadline, which is now only a month away. And after the right-hander delivered eight dazzling innings in a 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays last night — with general manager Ben Cherington and jet-setting principal owner John Henry in the ballpark, no less — the Sox figure to be more resolved than ever to hold on to their longest-tenured starting pitcher.

Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 1: Ace-like Buchholz carries Sox past Jays

The Jays had been a thorn in Clay Buchholz' side this year, but he finally exorcised that demon Monday night with eight excellent innings and a win. The Toronto Blue Jays are the best offensive team in Major League Baseball. From the most basic measurement--runs--to the more complex--wRC+--the Jays entered Monday night's game on top. And in his first three starts against them this season, that had shone through against Clay Buchholz. Against teams not based in Toronto, Buchholz' ERA sat at a cool 3.12. Against the Jays? 7.07. Well, that ERA is still not exactly a sterling figure after...
