The pitch by Buchholz that drove in 4 runs for the Astros could not have been a bigger meatball. Even if he was trying to go inside on him there he has to know his fastball doesn’t have the speed to get by Rasmus. What does Buchholz think he is throwing these days? He can’t possibly believe he can still blow hitters away with his fastball. If he does somebody should tell him otherwise or Swihart shouldn’t let him throw that pitch. It’s important to understand your limitations in life. I understand that I can’t be competitive in a full court basketball game. Give me half the court and that’s a different story. However, full court basketball in my weight class means within 20 minutes I could easily faint mid game. Here is a tip for the big fellas that might get sucked into a full court game. Find the out of shape guy on the other team and give him the look. He’ll know immediately what you’re trying to do. From then on you and him have entered into a contract stating you won’t embarrass each other and fast breaks are completely optional if not discouraged. After all the only reason you are there is to rationalize the beer and wings you are going to consume after the game. Nobody likes a hero in casual sporting events. My point is Clay Buchholz needs to avoid throwing a fastball right over the plate with the bases loaded to a hitter like Colby Rasmus. I think you get the picture. Red Sox pick it up again tomorrow night in Houston.
