As far as Bucholz, why would they risk his long term health (WHEN healthy that kid can flat out pitch) for one or two starts this year? The Sox are going to be a WS contender 4 years to come...they gotts think more about the future with a quality young pitcher like Clay.

Its going to be tough to win a series unless Beckett and Lester go out there and throw lights out...cant trust Bedard, and dont want to have to trust Lackey.

Thought I heard them say tonight during the game that today was his first throw session off the mound. I believe it got cut short because of rain. Might have only been 15 pitches er something?
