Shane gets the day off. Terrified fans rejoice!

While the Red Sox have been doing a lot of winning these past weeks, they haven't done a ton of sweeping. Sure, there was Chicago, but that's the White Sox. Against the Tigers, Rays, and Yankees, there's always been at least one stumble.

If the Sox are to stumble tonight, hopefully it will not be on the mound. Buchholz had an incredibly encouraging return to action in his last outing, and putting up another great start would certainly make it easier for the Red Sox to trust the man who has been more effective than any other starting pitcher when he's actually managed to stay on the field, particularly in the most important games of the year.
