I might be the biggest (and maybe only) Clay Bucholz fan in the world. The guy is a two time all-star who takes so much crap when he struggles and gets no recognition when he pitches well. Yes, the beginning of this year was an absolute disaster, but to pitch guys like Roenis Elias while Bucholz is in the bullpen is an insult to every single Sox fan. Why not give Clay a couple more starts to figure it out? He has proven over multiple seasons that he can lead a pitching staff when healthy. Obviously he hasn’t been able to stay healthy for an elongated period of time but he is still the best option that the Sox currently have. I’m so excited for his return to the rotation and I fully expect him to take advantage of this second chance. When Clay pitches well and stabilizes the back end of the rotation I can’t wait to point out this post and say I told you so.
