Buchholz scratched due to stiff back

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz' breakout 2010 season will end in disappointing fashion, as the 26-year-old has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Yankees on Saturday due to a stiff lower back. Tim Wakefield wil get the start in Buchholz' place.

 

Buchholz concludes his first full year in the Red Sox rotation with a 17-7 record and a 2.33 ERA that ranked second in the American League to Felix Hernandez (2.27) of the Seattle Mariners. He made 28 starts and pitched 173 2/3 innings, joining Jon Lester to give the Red Sox two All-Star starters atop their rotation. Buchholz struck out 120 and walked 67, holding opponents to a measly .226 average and nine homers.

Chara deal before season no slam-dunk
By: DJ Bean

BELFAST -- Zdeno Chara expressed on Friday his desire to stay with the Bruins beyond this season, the final one of his contract. Though Chara has said throughout the process that he would like to have a contract extension wrapped up before the regular season begins, a source familiar with the negotiations has told WEEI.com that though they are "shooting for" finishing a deal before the Oct. 9 opener against the Coyotes in Prague, they are "not sure it is possible."

 

Chara is planning on playing until he is 45, something he feels he can do based on his tireless commitment to his fitness. It is unlikely that this deal will be his last, given the scrutiny placed by the league on deals that go past a player's 40th birthday and that such a pact would be an 11-year deal. Chara understands that it might take more than one contract to get him through the rest of his career, but is hopeful that any progress made since an offseason...

Gammons: Beltre 'going to be tough signing'

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons joined The Big Show on Friday, offering his thoughts on a variety of topics, including his opinion on what the Red Sox will do with the $12.5 million option for David Ortiz in 2011.

 

"I think they will pick it [the option] up," said Gammons. "Because I know they're really worried if they don't he's going to be hitting against right-handed pitchers in either New York or Tampa. I think that's a tough thing to swallow. He may not be happy about them picking up the one year … but he did sign the contract. I understand where he's coming from and I understand how terrific he's been for this franchise, but that's the luck of the draw."

 

Gammons was asked if he thought the Sox were more likely to make a run at Jayson Werth or Carl Crawford in the offseason. The two outfielders are considered the top positional players in the 2010 free agent class.

Season over for Beltre

Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre has left the team to be with his wife in Los Angeles, where she is due to give birth to the couple's third child. 

 

Terry Francona told the media Friday that Beltre will not return this weekend, thus ending his 2010 season. The third baseman will now head into free agency on the heels of a season that saw him hit .321 with 28 HR and 102 RBI, all numbers ranked among the top 10 in the American League.
