08:20 AM ET 06.25 | Instead of pitching Sunday, Clay Buchholz woke up in the hospital. Because Buchholz had been ill for several days, the Red Sox [team stats] decided Saturday to scratch him from his start. But after he was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital and held overnight for observation, they put him on the 15-day disabled list. A source said the Red Sox aren't sure what caused the illness, but added that Buchholz' "stomach was all mixed up." A Channel 7 report indicated that Buchholz is dealing with intestinal bleeding, possibly caused by taking too much anti-inflammatory medication, like ibuprofen. The Red Sox are hopeful Buchholz won't have to miss more than two weeks.

It's too bad because he's pitched very well over the last month. Getting healthy is the important thing right now.

Even I know that you can't take too much of that stuff.

As long as they continue to play good ball let them be a soap opera all they want. It worked for the early 70's A's.
