The New England sports talk shows are all exercised about Clay Buchholz being shut down for the rest of the season. But we neeeeed him for the playoffs. I can make this simple: Kerry. Woods. I hope to be alive to watch next season. If pitching the great late-season rookie works 9 out of 10 times, it's still a bad bet. Injure your future, you'll kick yourself for 50 years in Boston.
In an update on my Cy Young post of a week ago, I think John Lackey won the award tonight. I can't say he doesn't deserve it.
