Now that the righty has established himself as an elite hurler, Red Sox Nation is expecting nothing but the best out of him on a nightly basis. But before he gets a chance to repeat a magnificent season, he — along with the rest of the Sox’ lethal staff — will be taking defensive reps, playing long toss, getting reacclimated with the rubber and hitting the links as often as possible in sunny Florida as 2011 Red Sox spring training is underway.
Buchholz posted 17 wins and a 2.33 ERA a season ago, his fourth in the bigs. Last summer was his first full year in Boston and the 26-year-old didn’t disappoint. But what questions do you have about Buchholz heading into 2011? Well, thanks to NESN.com, you can ask him yourself. The righty will be stopping by NESN’s Red Sox Live set on Tuesday night to speak with Tom Caron, Heidi Watney and Peter Gammons and will be fielding NESN.com readers’ questions, which can be left below in the comments section.
