A scary Plan B-uchholz

A scary Plan B-uchholz

Clay Buchholz not only pitched lousy last night, but his timing was impeccably bad as well.At a time, when everyone still is trying to get used to the rapidly increasing reality that Jon Lester is going to be traded by Thursday at 4 p.m. or signed by a deep-pocketed team like the Yankees or Dodgers before Thanksgiving, Buchholz went out and delivered a brutal start: seven runs, four walks in five-plus innings.

Red Sox 1, Blue Jays 14: Reversal of fortunes

Turnabout is fair play, I suppose. Now this is all kinds of appropriate. One week ago the Red Sox defeated the Blue Jays 14-1, locking up their seventh win in eight games. Well, they're one loss short right now, but Monday night the Blue Jays defeated the Red Sox 14-1, sending Boston to their sixth loss in seven games. So unfortunately just because the season is over doesn't mean the Red Sox can stop playing the games. Strike that. Just because the season is over doesn't mean the Red Sox can stop being physically present and have the games go on around them. That's more accurate, because...

Doubront digs himself a deeper hole

Doubront digs himself a deeper hole

BOSTON -- If Felix Doubront wants to return to the Red Sox starting rotation, he did not do himself any favors against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday night at Fenway Park. Even though starter Clay Buchholz suffered the loss after allowing seven runs on seven hits and four walks as Toronto cruised to a 14-1 win, Doubront seemed disinterested when he was handed the ball with two on and no outs in the sixth inning. The starter-turned-reliever faced 10 Toronto batters, recording just two outs and allowing six runs on six hits, including a three-run homer by the Blue Jays’ Melky...

Crooner or later, time heals Bobby V

Now that the 2014 Red Sox have plummeted to the basement of the American League East, it might be time for former manager Bobby Valentine to stand up and ask for vindication.Valentine was blistered when his team failed to produce during the 2012 season, which ended with the manager’s firing. He then watched from afar as the team produced a World Series championship the next year. But even amid his tumultuous season — he was 53-51 at the 2012 trade deadline, just four games out of the wild card — the Sox were never in the position they currently find themselves.

Rumors won’t rankle Jonny this time of year

Jonny Gomes has been through enough trade deadlines with enough teams to know the drill by now.His name may be mentioned, his bags may be packed and sent to another city, but it’s not going to affect his performance on the diamond.Either way, he’s the same player.So even though he has an expiring contract, is on a team that’s selling to contending teams and has had his name mentioned in trade rumors, his approach is not any different.

If anyone needed a reminder as to why the Red Sox are sellers at the trade deadline, they need look no further than tonight’s 14-1 drubbing at the hand of the Toronto Blue Jays.Trade Jon Lester? Trade Koji Uehara? Trade Mike Carp? How about trade ‘em all? The sellout crowd of 37,974 at Fenway Park may have justifiably wanted as much watching this debacle.Clay Buchholz was roughed up for seven runs, all earned, through five-plus innings, while the Red Sox bats remained a consistent source of woe, mustering just three hits against Toronto starter R.A.
