Clay Buchholz putrid in make-or-break start, allows three home runs to Rockies

Say goodbye to Clay Buchholz? Taking the mound with his spot in the starting rotation on the line, the Red Sox right-hander instead imploded against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday, done in by his nemesis — the long ball. Buchholz allowed three two-run homers in five-plus innings. His final line, not surprisingly, was ugly: 5 […]

Red Sox 2, Rockies 8: An end to a streak (and hopefully Buchholz in Boston)

The streak is over, and if the Red Sox are sane, so is Clay Buchholz' time in Fenway. Well, that went about as poorly as it possibly could have. Clay Buchholz was a joke, the Red Sox scored two runs, and Jackie Bradley Jr.'s hitting streak ended. Let's talk not about the blow-by-blow of the game, but...

A case for changing the intentional walk

There are certainly things to be said for tradition. Most of them are not nice. There’s a fairly interesting episode of the interview podcast The Ezra Klein Show, if you are into those kinds of things, in which the titular Klein (who I should note, as grand poobah of Vox is technically my colleague,) talks for roughly an hour and a half with noted conservative and gay rights activist Andrew Sullivan. While the politics involved are dense and require a bit of background knowledge to not put you to sleep, it’s worth a listen if only to hear to people who even mildly disagree on the...

It became apparent this wouldn’t be the Red Sox’ night on the first Red Sox at-bat of the evening. Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., looking to extend the longest hitting streak in the majors to 30 games, launched a Jon Gray offering deep to right field.

Eduardo Rodriguez waiting in wings with new mechanics as Clay Buchholz makes start that could decide spot in rotation

As we noted today, Clay Buchholz faces a do-or-die start on Thursday against the Rockies. If he pitches well, he likely keeps his spot in the rotation for at least another start. If he doesn’t, get ready for the return of Eduardo Rodriguez. It really might be that simple, and Rodriguez feels he’s closer than […]

Mookie gets a day

Mookie Betts got his first day off of the season on Thursday night against the Rockies. Betts was Boston’s only player to start the first 46 games. In his place, the ultra-hot Jackie Bradley Jr. batted leadoff. However, this is just a one-day thing, as  Bradley will move back toward the middle of the order […]
