Red Sox asking price for Buchholz reportedly "too high"

The Boston Red Sox' asking price for Clay Buchholz is reportedly "too high" for the Miami Marlins, according to FanRag's Jon Heyman.

Buchholz has a 5.99 ERA and 5.77 FIP this year, so uh, what exactly are the Red Sox expecting in return for one of the worst starters in baseball?

Hmm. That makes us wonder: please comment below with what you would accept in return for Buchholz.

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

Strong Grapefruit League debut for Price

David Price's Grapefruit League debut was nearly perfect.

The Red Sox left-hander pitched four scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk and striking out five in a 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in Fort Myers, Fla.

Price threw 55 pitches, 34 for strikes. He cruised through the first on nine pitches. He allowed the single and walk in the second.  

"It feels good. This is March 15 and I've never been able to have a four-pitch mix on March 15," Price told reporters after his start. "I've never been this far along in spring training even though I've only thrown in one game. I'm excited about that."

The Red Sox open March 29 at Tampa Bay, with Chris Sale likely to start. Price will likely pitch the second game of the season, March 30 at Tropicana Field.
