Back In Boston

Clay Buchholz already knows his plan of attack going forward -- Brian MacPherson, Providence Journal

I wonder if it's a good thing that Clay has a plan. Personally, I think the whole "head case" thing is overblown, but it's not too crazy to think that Clay might really benefit from the simple act of thinking less on each pitch.

Francona: Varitek Starting 'No knock' on Salty -- Gordon Edes, ESPN

It's hard to believe Francona here to begin with, but then he goes and praises Saltalamacchia's catching and we know there's not much of substance to be found here.

Around The AL East

The view from the other side -- Stacey, Camden Chat

White Sox 3, Yankees 2 -- Brandon C, Pinstripe Alley

And the plays that saved it -- Jeff Sullivan, Baseball Nation

An absolutely ridiculous finish to the night for one  Brent Lillibridge. Walkoff homers get all the attention--walkoff hits in general, really. But sometimes you have walk-off fielding. This  is one of those times.

And you thought it was stressful watching the Sox? -- Jeff Sullivan, Baseball Nation

Now, is this a "lucky us" thing or a "well of course not, we only win/lose in blowouts" sort of thing?
