CLAY BUCHHOLZ THE DOMINATOR

Posted by athomeatfenway on April 27, 2008

A heartbreaking loss with a breathtaking silver lining.  (April 26, 2008)

Buchholz now has pitched 3 games this season in which he looks like Cy Young.

Consider —  he has 5 starts.  He got an F in the Bronx, a C in the Sky Dome, and THREE A+’s against Texas at Home, Tampa on the road, and the Yankees at home.

In those three A+ games, his ERA is 1.35 over 20 innings, w 3 ER and 18 K’s.

Buchholz is growing into a DOMINATOR.  A guy who can shut you down and put together long streaks of 1-2-3 innings.  Godfather Schilling must be proud.

The kid didn’t get a LOSS last night.

Francona made the wrong call by not pulling Clay after 21 outs and 95 pitches.

All we can ask of Beckett-Matsuzaka-Wake-Lester-Buch is that they complete 6 innings and contain the opposition to 1,2 or 3 runs.

The kid was a STAR last night; the hitters didn’t come through.
