07:15 AM ET 06.13 | Chalk the curious cases of Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester up to -- for now, anyway -- the Department of Bad Timing. What's completely unclear is if the Bad Omen Department is involved as well. The facts are as concerning as the trend is worrisome. ... Yesterday we learned that Buchholz' stiff neck is still giving him trouble and that Lester is at the lost-and-found looking for his misplaced delivery. It's never good to have any starter get hurt or go into a slump, but to have the two best starters on the team go down at the same time? Yikes. By this afternoon we'll know for sure, but from the way manager John Farrell sounded yesterday, Buchholz' next start, already pushed back to Sunday, is likely to be pushed back another two days.
