Before the ALDS I was sure Buchholz was one key to Sox success. Now we know he absolutely is not. Lester, Lackey, and Peavy had done the job. So has the bullpen. Buchholz is in the nice to have category, not the essential category.
I wish I had $35 million to blow on something that is simply "nice to have"
2013: $5.5 million
2014: $7.7 million
2015: $12 million
2016: $13 million team option (or $245,000 buyout)
2017: $13.5 million team option (or $500,000 buyout)
What is your point about $35 mil.?
It was a 4 year, $30 Guaranteed Million Dollar Deal. I was off by $5 million.
Therefore, I will correct my statement: I wish I had $30 million to blow on something that is simply "nice to have"
