Red Sox's Clay Buchholz Accused of Cheating: Latest Updates

Dan SteckenbergAnalyst IMay 3, 2013

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz has been accused of cheating by multiple Toronto Blue Jays broadcasters following Boston's 10-1 victory over Toronto on Wednesday night.

The win brought Buchholz to 6-0 with a 1.01 ERA on the year. Last year he finished the season at 11-8 with a 4.56 ERA. This year, his K per 9 average is 9.5, compared to 6.8 for his career.

The idea that Buchholz's success this year might not all be fairly gained was first floated by Blue Jays' broadcaster (and former professional pitcher) Dirk Hayhurst:

Could be rosin, could be something else. Looked awfully fishy, is all. twitter.com/TheGarfoose/st…
