Talking with Comcast Sports New England's Sean McAdam after Wednesday night's 8-1 opening game victory over the Cardinals, Buchholz said he felt like he has one start left:
I have, probably, one start left and this is where I want to throw it on the line. That's sort of how I'm looking at it right now. I haven't been 100 percent for a long time now. I've pitched at less than 100 percent the last couple of months, so what's one more?
Buchholz has struggled i his last two starts with velocity and fatigue, hitting the proverbial wall after five innings in two games against the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series. Under 80 pitches both starts, Buchholz' fastball lacked movement and dropped in speed into the low 80s.
