Who Will Be This Week’s Amica Pitcher of the Week?


April 24, 2012

Who Will Be This Week's Amica Pitcher of the Week?It was a rough weekend for Boston pitching.

Even amid the magic of Fenway's 100th anniversary, the staff lost its touch and seems no closer to finding it.

After Daniel Bard took a loss to the Rays in the final game of that series, Jon Lester and Josh Beckett both took drubbings from the Texas Rangers' bats, losing 18-3 and 6-3, respectively.

Against the Yankees, it didn't get much better. New York put up a 6-2 win over Clay Buchholz in the 100th anniversary game, and the Yankees followed it up with an even stronger 15-9 win on Saturday. The latter loss came when Vicente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves were each tagged for five runs in back-to-back seven-run innings.

All of the agony unfortunately came after Felix Doubront pitched six solid innings, holding the Yankees to just one run and leaving with a 9-1 Boston lead.

The Yankee comeback marked arguably the lowest point of the season for the Red Sox, and in a spring full of lows, that's saying something.

In a week with plenty of disappointment, who do you think deserves to be the Amica Pitcher of the Week?
