If the Red Sox want to finish up April with an even record, they'll need Clay Buchholz to not suck.
Unfortunately, this is something of an unreasonable request these days. Or at least so it seems.
#11 / Pitcher / Boston Red Sox
Aug 14, 1984
|2012 - Clay Buchholz||2-1||4||4||0||0||0||0||22.1||33||23||22||6||10||11||8.87||1.93|
#57 / Pitcher / Oakland Athletics
Feb 16, 1987
|2012 - Tom Milone||3-1||4||4||0||0||0||0||27.0||17||6||6||1||6||13||2.00||.85|
They'll also have to score runs without Kevin Youkilis, who has been scratched for the second straight game with a stiff back. I'd warn you not to look directly into the lineup, but if you choose to do so, please remember that at least it's against a lefty. Do not attempt to harm yourself.
