Things are a little brighter in Boston after a generally positive game from most of the team. Pablo Sandoval isn't hurt (and is hitting homers), Mike Napoli's issue is entirely temporary, and Koji Uehara reminded us that his fastball doesn't have to be very good, because his splitter usually will be.
Now it's on Clay Buchholz to keep the better feelings rolling in Fenway Park. Which on any given day is entirely within his abilities right up until the moment that it's clearly completely impossible. That would sound silly, but if you've watched Buchholz for long, you know what I mean.
