What better to do than think about the future when the present doesn’t give you much to ponder. As we have heard all season, YFs are looking to get their Phil, but our team has more quietly begun molding a heap of Clay. We haven’t beaten the Buchholz drum this year (we have been keeping tabs), but the Sox have quietly developed someone who looks to be a real keeper — last night he led the Wilmington Blue Rocks to a win in the first game of their division championship series. The future looks promising, as long as the good health stays and the repertoire develops, and also as long as Theo doesn’t ship him off for what’s left of Don Slaught (he did catch Charlie Hough, after all, even if it was way back in the mid 80s). Should these two pitchers continue on their current upward paths, the Sox and Yanks will both be very, very pleased.
