Clay Buchholz found his way into more trade rumors than any Red Sox player, but once 4 p.m. arrived today, after a stressful and strange afternoon, he still wore his Red Sox uniform.

Its definitely a good feeling, Buchholz said. Its hard to not realize and see your name on TV with a lot of different trades going on. The organization is awesome. Theyve treated me about as good as a person could be treated. Its always good to be a Boston Red Sox.

Its a good thing to be wanted, and its a good thing to be with an organization that thinks youre going to help them in the long run. This is an awesome organization to be with.

Its a helpless feeling knowing you have no say in whatever goes on, to get here today and walk around not knowing whats going on.
