Buchholz 'Fine' After Re-Hab Start For Single A

Maybe it's the name of the place he had to pitch in. Would you want to hurl a re-hab start in Fishkill, NY (or more precisely, Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, NY)? Not bloody likely. Anyway, Clay "Get That Infant Off My Shoulder" Buchholz threw a forgettable start for the Single A Lowell Spinners yesterday and pronounced himself physically "fine" after the game. That's probably all we should care about—but giving up three runs on 38 pitches to the 'Murderer's Row' line-up of the Hudson Valley Renegades is not a good thing. Said Clay, "I felt good. That was my only concern coming out here and pitching. Physically, I felt fine." Buchholz last pitched for the Boston Red Sox on June 8th. When he actually returns to the hill for The Carmine Hose is still anybody's guess. Clay went on to state, "I feel like I haven’t pitched in 21⁄2 months." Duh!
