    Remembering when Buchholz faced Jackson in 2008

    While working on the Sea Dogs game story (they lost Wednesday night to Reading, 13-4), I glanced at the Red Sox game on the press box TV, and watched Clay Buchholz and Austin Jackson battling each other with bases loaded in the seventh. That brought me back to three years ago. Remember when Buchholz was sent all the way back to Double-A in 2008, to work with pitching coach Mike Cather? […]

    Statement on Dice-K; Hassan’s eye; Sox & Dogs (updated) line-ups

    Update to Dogs line-up below: Chiang in for Dening. Red Sox medical director Dr. Tom Gill issued the following statement on Daisuke Matsuzaka: “Daisuke experienced tightness in his elbow during his last start.  His examination is consistent with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, and strain to his common flexor mass.  An MRI was obtained which confirmed these exam findings.  He will be re-examined in two weeks.” So Dice-K is shut […]

    Dogs win; Bowden up; Johnson out; Buchholz tonight

    It took 35 games, but the Portland Sea Dogs finally have 12 victories, after beating Reading 14-4 Tuesday. Alex Hassan homered. Both Che-Hsuen Lin and Jon Hee had three hits. See the story. Former Sea Dogs pitcher Michael Bowden got his first call-up to the majors this season. He is expected to join the Red Sox today. Bowden, 24, had a 1.59 ERA in 22 2/3 innings of relief in Pawtucket.

    Sox, Dogs lineups

    The Portland Sea Dogs are back at Hadlock Field, sporting a 11-23 record, the worst start after 34 games in franchise history. The weather is damp but they will do everything they can to get this game in. This is Reading’s last trip to Portland. One roster move: Miguel Gonzalez, who was just promoted from Salem, has been moved up to Triple-A Pawtucket. Replacing him is lefty Cesar Cabral. He had […]

    The other first baseman; Gonzalez’s mental edge; Wagner in Salem; Ranaudo

    Former Sea Dogs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is tearing up Triple-A. He went 2-for-4 Monday with 2 home runs and 5 RBI. His numbers through 36 games: .376, 12 HR, 50 RBI. The Red Sox, who traded Rizzo in the off-season, are not missing him. If Adrian Gonzalez (another former Sea Dogs first baseman, pictured left in 2002) had a start similar to Carl Crawford, Red Sox fans would be groaning […]

    Never so happy to be average; baton to Dice-K; Hottovy, Bell & Brentz

    The Nation is celebrating today because their Red Sox are a .500 team, finally, at 20-20. That may sound silly, except when you factor in the 2-10 start, and that Boston reached .500 by sweeping the Yankees in three in the Bronx. Now the Orioles come into Fenway for two. Boston seems to have the edge in pitching tonight, with the somewhat-increasingly reliable Daisuke Matsuzaka (think I’m hedging a bit?) […]
