Clay Buchholz Back To Bullpen, O'Sullivan Starts Friday

In our recent FenwayNation Poll on the subject, only 8% wanted to send Clay Buchholz back to the bullpen. Nevertheless, that's just where he's headed. The team announced the move, simultaneous with the naming of Sean O'Sullivan to start Friday's game in place of Buchholz. This is the second trip to the 'pen for the benighted Texan, who carries a 3-9 record with an abysmal 5.91 ERA. Maybe he'll get enough positive outings in relief to be a trade chip before July 31st.
