    Nice job by the Sox of nabbing a 95-mph thrower with good control with the 42nd pick in the draft a couple years ago.

    A lot of teams took him off their draft boards because he got into some very serious trouble as a freshman.

    BTW, Francona called Theo Epstein after the 7th and 8th innings to discuss pitch counts, as he'd never thrown more than 98 pitches in a game before. He finished with 115, but they were going to take him out if he reached 120.

    This has little to do with Bucholz no-hitter, but I will never forget 1967 when Red Sox rookie Billy Rohr came within an out of a no-hitter against the Yankees. I was fourteen and my friends and I were listening to the game on WHDH radio. Elston Howard broke it up with a single with two outs in the last inning.

    I believe Rohr, who was a real stringbean, won maybe two more major league games.

    The "true creature" had the most heartbreaking close call.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Now, the Sox have to hope he doesn't go all Bobo Holloman or Mike Warren on them.

    I'm sure the discussion took place, and I know the BoSox pay close attention to pitch counts, but who here really thinks Francona marches out to the mound and removes Buchholz with two out in the bottom of the 9th, a no-hitter going, sitting at 120 pitches?

    I'm not sure either he or Epstein can really pull the trigger on that one. That'd be a tough, tough decision.

    Those 2 curveballs he threw to Markakis were just unfair.

    I remember Clay Kirby had a no-hitter through eight innings when Padre manager Preston Gomez lifted him for a pinch hitter. He received lots of second guessing, especially since the reliever ended up losing the game.

    It'd take a lot of stones to do that.
