Clay Buchholz Looking to Build Off Solid 2010 Performance, Expects 2011 to Be a ‘Fun Year’

In a season that saw a never-ending cycle of disappointment, Clay Buchholz was one of the few positive factors that Red Sox Nation could depend on. The young right-hander established himself as one of the most dominant pitchers in the league during 2010, posting a 17-7 record with a 2.33 ERA.

Looking toward 2011, Buchholz is ready to build off that success from last season with a strong foundation of confidence. Even though the team was decimated with injuries last season, Buchholz was still impressed with the way the Red Sox came together to overcome the tough obstacles.

"It's something I can build off of from last year, having a good season and having a good team around me dealing with all the injuries and still doing some things right," Buchholz said. "There are definitely things I can still learn to do a little bit better in some situations, but it's a building block and a stepping stone for me."
