ClayMation Nation

Clay Buchholz seems intent on following up his 17-win season with another stellar campaign. The young righty has now hurled nine scoreless innings this Spring, after blanking the O's in four last night. It's his sense of command that also shines through—brimming with a confidence he did not exhibit last Spring (when it was unclear what his role would be on the team).

J. D. Drew continued to have a good start to his year by clubbing a HR to right-center field—then following it up with a laser shot single to right. If Drew can stay healthy, his "contract year" could be his best in Boston.
