I really don't spend so much thinking about the Red Sox, but last night I woke up in a sweat over a nightmare that the Sox had traded Clay Buchholz for a 32 year-old right-hander Dan Versant from the Padres. I don't think any such guy even exists, and I couldn't imagine why the Sox would be trading Buchholz for some (imaginary) guy nobody ever heard of.
Speak of the devil, Buchholz pitched four scoreless innings against some minor leaguers today. Better than getting lit up.
The 'obvious' question is whether the Sox have enough offense to complement what is expected to be a solid 'run prevention' team.
