"Peavy and Buchholz will pitch over in St. Louis, we're still working through which day each guy will go. And I know there's been a lot of buzz on Clay's physical condition, 'Where's he at? What's taken place the last couple of starts?' He's ready to go and he will start... 'Is he healthy?' Yeah. If he wasn't healthy, and it was to the point of a detriment, either current or long term, we wouldn't even hesitate, we'd pull the plug on it and go in another direction. He's ready to start." -- John Farrell today on the developing Clay Buchholz situation

"There are real concerns about Buchholz's ability to pitch Saturday, according to people familiar with the situation ... If Buchholz can't make the Saturday start, Felix Doubront would take his place. Doubront threw a surprise simulated game Tuesday at Fenway to prepare in case Buchholz can't make it." -- Jon Heyman on the developing Clay Buchholz situation
