07:06 AM ET 05.03 | Quite a day for Clay Buchholz, who was named pitcher of the month and defended how he got there. [Buchholz] denied a claim made by former major league pitcher and current Toronto radio broadcaster Dirk Hayhurst that Buchholz "slathered" a foreign substance on himself that he used to doctor the ball in Wednesday's 10-1 Boston win over the Blue Jays. Buchholz was announced as the American League pitcher of the month for April on Thursday afternoon. "There's a rosin bag behind the mound and it's there for everybody to use every inning after our warm-up," Buchholz said. ... "Sometimes I put a little thing of water on my hip just to get moisture on your hands. Cause sometimes the balls that they throw to you feel like cue balls off a pool table."

I think the "slathered" substance is the least of the Blue Jays problems at this moment....
