2011 Red Sox Community Projections: Clay Buchholz And What Could Have Been

If there's one man who could have made the difference for the Red Sox this past year, it was Clay Buchholz.

It's hard to say the end of Buchholz' season came suddenly. After all, while he pitched his last game on June 16, it wasn't until much later that the severity of his injury would become clear. As a result, Red Sox fans were left waiting for a savior, hoping for a return that would never come.

In his shortened season, Buchholz was not the sort of world-beater that he proved to be in 2010. He was, however, exactly what the Sox needed in September: a solid starter capable of keeping the team in the game. Hopefully we'll get something similar when he returns in 2012.

A solid amount of yellow and red considering that the typically easy hits were thrown out the window. MattSullivan is the clear winner, and given what he was right on, likely also a witch. Burn him? Burn him!
