Modeling Clay

What a performance! Last night, Clay Buchholz, tossed a no-hitter in only his second major league start. A day earlier and we wouldn’t be having this conversation, as Buchholz was called up due to the league’s September 1st roster expansion. Wearing Sox unies, I’ve seen Hideo Nomo and Derek Lowe pitch no-nos but this was far and away the most special. And it came at the exact time we needed it most. Sometimes it takes that Herculean feat to right the ship as you steam ahead towards the playoffs. Here’s hoping Clay provided that charge.
