That greatly increases the chances Bradley will get one more at-bat than Holt.

In response to JoeBrady1's comment: I don't think that Joe Brady said that. I think he said that, if the right deal was available, you trade Buch's $13M salary for a good prospect, and then use that more »

If you trade Buchholz, he has to be replaced for 2016. It's a move that requires another move.

Yes, credit is due.

There is a lot of X factor with Buchholz. Maybe he's one of those people who doesn't really grow up until he hits 30. Maybe he sees his time window starting to close and puts his mind to getting the more »

Price will be up for auction and looking for Scherzer money. I wouldn't be too sure the Sox are going to be any more interested in that than they were last winter.

In response to JoeBrady1's comment: IMHO, he alternates between a low-end #1 (because of health, not talent), and a #4. Overall, that's a low-end #2, high-end #3. The possibility of him regressing t more »

We all know Buchholz is capable of pitching better than a #3 for extended stretches. He did it in 2013 and he's doing it this year. He's been erratic and frustrating, we all know that too. But let' more »

When you go on Baseball-Reference and see that 3 of our top 10 in WAR are Vic, Ogando and De Aza, it's kind of funny and kind of sad.
