If you can't go, Keith Law is covering the thing and has filed two jam-packed notes columns from the scene since Friday. Sox fans -- and I know there are many of you around here -- may be interested in hearing this:
Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz worked three strong innings Friday, amping it up to 93-96 with good command for the first inning, after which he lost the handle briefly, recovering for a solid third inning. Both secondary pitches remain well above average, although it was clear he was there to work on fastball command, as he threw predominantly heaters.There's much, much more, obviously. Yes, the columns are on Insider, but as I've said before, even if paying for content on the Internet galls you, Neyer and Law make it worth the price, so I highly recommend you ponying up if you're able. If you need some way to offset the bad vibes such a transaction entails, know that ESPN automatically sends you a copy of their awful magazine with an Insider subscription, and that you can do awful things to it to make you feel better.
