Player Notes
After taking a shutout into the ninth, Clay Buchholz was denied a win Monday, giving up three runs in 8 1/3 innings against the Blue Jays.

Advice: Buchholz was brilliant for eight, so sticking with him in a 3-0 game seemed like the right move. Nevertheless, he certainly would have been pulled after the second one-out single he gave up had Koji Uehara been his usual dominant self. As it was, Buchholz was left in and walked Jose Bautista on four pitches, loading the bases. Uehara took over then and allowed all three runners to score, tying the game. The Red Sox won 4-3 in 10 innings, snapping their seven-game losing streak, but Buchholz deserved better, even if he is the game's most frustrating pitcher right now. While he's pitched well in three of his last four starts, dropping his ERA from 6.20 to 5.76, he's still winless since July 18.

Clay Buchholz gave up six runs in six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

Advice: Buchholz started out well enough, retiring 11 of the first 12 hitters he faced before giving up a double and an RBI single in the fourth. It was the fifth in which things unraveled, as four singles and two walks led to five runs. There was also a botched popup in there, but since the Red Sox got an out on the play, it didn't matter overly much. If the Red Sox were still in contention, Buchholz wouldn't have survived the inning. As is., he was allowed to come back out for the sixth and finish on a high note, striking out two of the last three guys he faced. Still, even with some encouraging signs of late, Buchholz simply isn't a viable fantasy pitcher right now.
