Clay Buchholz Ready to Fight for Spot in Rotation Clay Buchholz achieved considerably more success in 2009 than he did in 2008, and yet he finds himself in a very similar situation to the one he was in a year ago at this time.

The Red Sox have an excess of starting pitching, so the 25-year-old hurler finds himself fighting for a spot in the starting rotation once again.

“You have six guys that are fighting for five spots, so it’s sort of the same type of deal [as last season],” Buchholz said.

“Last year’s gone. I can forget about everything that happened last year. It was a good stepping stone, but at the same time, there’s stuff I have to do this year and I have to prove that I’m here to pitch in the five-man rotation for this team and help win another championship for the Red Sox.”
