Buchholz. This is one of those times I really miss living in New England–I am dying to watch tonight’s game. I watched Buchholz’s no-hitter in 2007 and thought he had one of the best curveballs around. His 2008 disappointment came as a complete surprise. Its great to see how well he’s been pitching for the Paw Sox this season (99 IP, 89 K, .980 WHIP, 2.36 ERA); I hope he carries that success into tonight’s start.
When I lived in Indiana, I used to purchase the MLB.radio package and listen to games over the computer. Now married with child, I settle for watching the Gameday box scores. But all night, I’ll be wishing I could see that curveball.
