Bring back Buchholz NOW!!!

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent IJune 19, 2009
If tonight's disaster of a pitching performance wasn't a clear enough eye-opener answer, then no one knows what is.

Boston Red Sox fans are becoming more angry each time that Daisuke Matsuzaka takes the mound and more and more frustrated when he cannot throw strikes, walks the bases loaded, walks in runs, and not giving his team a chance to win.

The bases loaded 0 outs without giving up any runs days are over and tonight proved it.

Matsuzaka was charged with six runs, all earned, in 4 + innings tonight and when Terry Francona came out of that dugout and called out Justin Masterson you could hear some boos from the crowd as Dice-K exited.

After tonight's 9-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves Matsuzaka is 1-5 with an 8.23 ERA in eight starts.


Meanwhile down in Pawtucket, there's a pitcher that has clearly proved himself worthy of coming back to the big leagues and that kid's name is Clay Buchholz.

Buchholz has been thriving with the PawSox with a 5-0 record and astounding 1.90 ERA in 12 games. In 71 innings pitched he's given up 42 hits (seven of those home runs), 16 runs, and 65 strikeouts.

Six-man rotation? How about designating Dice-K for assignment and calling up Buchholz to finally give him another chance to prove himself and shine in the big leagues. Red Sox fans cannot take this anymore!
Keeping you posted folks.
