Curb-stomped twice in a row by the Mariners, the Sox look to avoid getting swept and throw Buchholz out there again after some AAA rehab. Iwakuma is the opposing pitcher, so avoiding a sweep is seeming unlikely. Oh wells. About halfway there. If things don’t change dramatically in the next 2-3 weeks, it’s time for the Sox to start selling pieces that have no place in their long-term plan and can get them any kind of reasonable return. Peavy? Pierzynski? I doubt they’re trading Lester if they’re hoping to extend him or Uehara if they want to sign him for next year, but who knows what kind of offer could be put on the table? Good luck!
