Red Sox 3, Rays 0: Unpredictable Clay Buchholz shuts out Rays

Clay Buchholz was in full-on Jekyll mode Sunday afternoon, spinning a complete game shutout to lift the Red Sox to a 3-0 victory over the Rays. For a pitcher in the midst of a terrible season, Clay Buchholz sure does spin his fair share of gems. Sunday Buchholz went the distance, throwing nine scoreless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, allowing just three hits in his second complete game shutout of the year. We've seen two types of "Bad Buchholz" on the year. The first is completely out of control, falling behind in every at bat, giving up free bases, and ultimately suffering death by a...

Rusney Castillo Singles In Professional Debut

After a very long layoff, newly minted Red Sox CF Rusney Castillo has played in an actual baseball game. Castillo debuted for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox and singled in his first professional at-bat. He ultimately went 1-2 with a strikeout. He was also caught stealing. Said the $72.5 million-dollar-man, "I feel great. It was a good day. I’ve wanted this day to come for a long time now. It finally got here...My No. 1 objective would be to be the same player I’ve always been, to play my game and not try to do too much or try to become someone else." Hopefully, this is the first step to...

Juan Nieves adjusts from veteran staff to kids
