Buchholz sent to Pawtucket, Wakefield getting closer

After another sub-three inning outing, the Red Sox finally decided to ship Clay Buchholz to Triple-A Pawtucket. Despite his great stuff, Buchholz has struggled with command, surrendering a lot of gopher balls since his latest callup. Okay Theo’s minions, time to stop trying to change the boy. Let him go back to pitching the way he’s used to, at least until the offseason.

On the bright side, Tim Wakefield is throwing bullpens and feeling good, so we will need at most a spot start or two from someone (unless the Josh Beckett situation gets any worse).

UPDATE: It’s actually Double-A Portland now.
