Ranking the 2011 Red Sox, 25-to-1
23. Clay BuchholzPreviously: No. 6
A healthy Buchholz would arguably rate as the best No. 3 starter in the American League, and perhaps the second-best in baseball after Philadelphia's Cole Hamels. But that's the unfortunate catch: He hasn't been healthy since June, and expected to be lost for the rest of the regular season at least with a stress fracture in his back. A winner of six games this season -- including his last five decisions -- he'd obviously be rated much higher if chances of him pitching again this season were greater.
