Two high qual stahts in a row from Buchholz.
Not that there is a lot of competition here, but my nomination for the greatest moment in the nascent 2012 season is Buchholz giving up a triple against the first battah he faced in the game and then going on to strike out the side on 13 pitches.
That was ballsy.
That was 70s retro porn unwaxed hairy ballsy is what that was.
Meanwhile, did you notice this tidbit, "Beckett taught Buchholz a split-finger fastball before his start against Tampa Bay May 16 [and] Buchholz threw 11 of the pitches Tuesday, using the offspeed pitch thrown on a sharp downward plane to keep the Marlins from timing his fastball"?
Well who knew? Beckett as Kwai Chang Caine.
Ah, yes, I can see it now...
"When you can snatch this chicken nugget from my hand, it will be time..."
"for a beer."
