Today certainly will go a long way in solidifying the righty’s legacy as a pitcher and a Boston athlete. After all, he might never again get this opportunity to start a World Series game.
Is he going to be Schilling/Martinez-like? Is he going to be a reflection of the Buchholz we’re already used to, the one who is considered fragile and has never started 30 or more games in one season?
We’ll see soon enough. The Red Sox better hope Buchholz writes the former.
