Red Sox Recap: No Doc, no regrets

On a day when Roy Halladay was perfect, the Red Sox were not left to lament the one who got away. The Sox took their shot at acquiring the former Blue Jays ace last summer, but 10 months later, even as Halladay dominates (7-3, 1.99) for the Phillies, the Sox have been just as well off for not having acquired the man who has been the best pitcher in baseball since 2002.

 

That is because acquiring Halladay would have come at a cost of Clay Buchholz, who continued his own emergence as a top-of-the-rotation pitcher on Saturday, as he outperformed reigning AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke in a 1-0 victory over the Royals. (For details of the game, see Closing Time.)

Pedroia to get day off on Sunday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after his team's 1-0 victory on Saturday that second baseman Dustin Pedroia -- who made a game-saving, diving play on a smash up in the middle with a runner on third in the eighth inning -- will be out of the lineup on Sunday. Francona suggested that an off-day on Sunday, coupled with Monday's off day, could prove of benefit to the slumping second baseman. Pedroia went 0-for-3 with a walk, and is now hitless in his last 13 at-bats and is 5-for-40 (.125) over his last 10 games.

 

"I think he needs a day off [Sunday]. But it’s not easy to give days off because he’s such a good player. We’ve talked about how good he is defensively, but when the game is on the line, he’s even better," said Francona. "[But] I think with a day game after a night game and the next day off, I think it will be great for him. I think that’s what he needs.”
