Bullpen, Squanders Spoil Solid Pomeranz Start, 4-2

Bad Omen At Fenway (AP Photo)If the "bullpen" (specifically Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz) had done its job—namely holding the Tigers to two runs—Boston might have had a chance to pull out last night's 4-2 loss. But, it came down to timely hitting on the part of Detroit and multiple squandered scoring opportunities on the part of Boston that really spelled the difference. Drew Pomeranz had his signature curveball working and delivered six decent innings—yielding just two earned runs on only four hits. But, his one big mistake came to old friend Jose Iglesias—who roped a two-run HR to...

Dave Dombrowski on Clay Buchholz: ‘He’s a real good protection for us’

Dave Dombrowski was asked flat-out about Clay Buchholz’ trade market Monday. His answer was predictable. “I wouldn’t get into specific players,” the Red Sox president of baseball operations said. So, what does the future hold for the 31-year-old? “Well, right now he’s in our pen and protecting us as we go forward with the five […]

Can the Red Sox trade Clay Buchholz?

The Red Sox and Clay Buchholz are in an uncomfortable holding pattern. Is there a trade available to set them both free? As we've already discussed earlier today, things aren't going terribly well for Clay Buchholz in Boston. He's basically hanging around waiting for either someone in the rotation to get hurt, the Sox to need four garbage-time innings, or someone to tell him he's no longer needed in Fenway Park. He doesn't have to ride the Pawtucket bus like Joe Kelly, but he also doesn't get the feeling of progress--a goal that he's realistically working towards that provides a light at...

"The Decade Of Clay" Is Likely to Be Ending Soon

()He was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the first round of the 2005 MLB Draft—pick number 42 overall. And now, sadly, Clay Buchholz has been relegated to "mop-up" duty in blow-out games against crappy opponents (like last night's ninth inning appearance with Boston up 13-2). And it seems that even Clay himself is resigned to the likelihood that he will be dealt soon, saying, "I feel like the guys they’re rolling out there, I don’t have a spot. I’m the odd man out." And his manager isn't afraid to throw him under the proverbial bus. Said John Farrell recently, "He's in a tough...

An unfitting end for Clay Buchholz in Boston

Clay Buchholz' time in Boston is coming to an end. 10 years ago, nobody would've expected that end to be so...sad. When Clay Buchholz couldn't even earn an inning in Wednesday night's 11-7 win over the Giants, a game which saw Matt Barnes toss three frames in relief of Drew Pomeranz, it left some fans wondering what exactly he was even in the pen for. The response? Farrell was pretty open about the fact that Buchholz just wasn't meant for important games right now. An 8-3 deficit was the example Farrell used for a Buchholz game, but we also found out last night that the ninth inning of a...
