Clay Buchholz To Miss Memorial Day Start

For those of you who—like your humble scribe—were looking forward to seeing Clay Buchholz continue his Cy Young Tour in person: Sorry. The Red Sox announced on Sunday that the righty will miss his Monday start because of "irritation in his right AC joint in the collarbone area". As far as we know that has nothing to to with Tommy John surgery. Turns out it was more like a Nice Daddy injury, "The night we got back from the road trip, just got in bed and had the little girl with me and I fell asleep like this [with her crooked in his arm] instead of on my back like I usually do. When I woke up the next morning it felt a little tight." At worst, Clay should just be pushed back a few days. But still, we have to trudge to Fenway tomorrow to see an Alfredo Aceves start. Yeesh!
