*3 Star MLB Play of the Day* Clay Buchholz was one of baseball's worst pitchers through the first two months of the year, but he has been pretty good of late. Buchholz has good stuff, and when he is in a groove he is tough to hit. Cleveland is in a major slump right now, and their lineup is short-handed. On the other side, Chris Seddon starts for Cleveland. It appears Seddon simply isn't a big league pitcher at this stage, but the team doesn't have many other options. The Red Sox have made a habit of crushing lefties this year, and I think they should get to him early and often in this one. Boston in 25-10 in Buchholz's last 35 road starts. They are 11-5 in their last 16 against lefties. Look for this one to get ugly. Take the Red Sox -1.5.
