The news from Florida made Clay Buchholz's bad start last night a little easier to take. Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched three scoreless innings yesterday for the Gulf Coast Red Sox. He only gave up one hit without walking anyone, but he did hit a batter. He will now join the Portland Sea Dogs for a start on Saturday and then join the PawSox for a start on Sept. 3. If all goes well he could rejoin the big club the next week. That give the Red Sox a chance to see him pitch in the majors a couple of times before any possible playoff start. You can never have too much pitching.
