    Buchholz to see back specialist

    From WEEI.com:

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will fly to North Carolina this week for a consulation with back specialist Dr. Craig Brigham. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since June 19 (retroactive to June 17), and he suggested prior to the start of Monday's game that he is seeing little improvement in the lingering soreness in his lower back, which will keep him from returning to the mound until at least after the All-Star break.

    “I’ve been sitting out for two and a half weeks and getting a little miserable with it. There’s nothing I want to do besides go out there and throw and pitch and try to help this team win. But I feel like I’ve got to be healthy to do that,” Buchholz said prior to Monday’s game. “It felt like it was getting better for a while. Started doing some treatments on it. It’s not going down, but it’s sort of staying the same. That’s what we’re looking at.

    “We’ve already said it’s probably going to be after the All-Star break sometime, so hopefully those couple days off at the break will kind of give it a rest by not doing anything, just sort of laying around.”

    The Sox are hopeful that a visit to Brigham will offer reassurance that Buchholz will not be risking any further harm to his back -- and consequently, other areas such as his arm -- when he returns to the mound.

    “It just hurts when he does certain things pitching,” said Sox manager Terry Francona. “He’s moving around so well other than that, but obviously, because he’s a pitcher, when we send him out there, we want him to know that even if it hurts he’s not hurting himself.”

    Buchholz is 6-3 with a 3.48 ERA in 14 starts this year. He has experienced the back soreness in a number of starts.

    is there a more fragile team in baseball than the red sox.
    luckily, they don't play hockey. bunch of wusses.

    also, now that drew really sux, he's become one of the IRON MEN for the SOX.

    He's probably done for the year with back issues. Time to bring up Millwood and see if he can win some games.
    Lackey has not pitched well but at least he takes the ball every 5th start, as does Lester and I'm sure Wake will as well.

    hey alibiike,

    that's the problem--SLACKEY takes the ball every 5 starts. not giving the ball to SLACKEY would solve the problem.
    thanks to 'boy genius, the SOX are not WS worthy.
    the SLACKEY and CRAWFORD signings will go down as two of the worst of all time. and some of you thought the DREW and LUGO signings were bad.

    pleas fire theo blunder!

    It would take well into August before Buchholz built up innings and got his pitching rhythm back. 
    Every year fans want to get rid of Wakefield but he manages to come in handy when a pitcher is down.

    Yup.  Anybody who rags on Wake are missing this simple fact.  He is not a guy who can take the ball every five all year.  He is inconsistent.  And there is the catching thing.  BUT, Timmy is the best sixth starter money can buy.

    I think you mean "IVAN Nova".
    Maybe you should spend less time on this Red Sox board and more time on a Yankee board so you'll know the players names on your "favorite" team.

    I don't think it was a typo.You spend so much time and energy on this board  that you don't know what's going on with your favorite team.
    I also don't spend hours upon hours every day trolling a rival teams board.I think that is a truly moronic act.

                                Hey Buch.,     If this guy in NC doesn't work out, I know a guy in the Dominican that works wonders.

    It's a good thing that you aren't paid to think then, because you'd be awfully broke.

    If Buch and Lester are out for a fairly long period, our drive to deep October obviously becomes much more difficult. I agree with the postive Wake comments, can't imagine not having him eat those innings during these injury periods, which always occur. Also, Miller is a great catch for us right now. Regardless of the length of injuries to Buch and Lester, it will not change my opinion of simply DFAing Lackey.
