Toronto 11, Boston 8 | Jays Pound Clay Clay's ERA: 5.76; Opponents Batting .444 With Runners in Scoring Position 'You've Got Your No. 1' -- John Henry on Clay Buchholz After Opener Cafardo: As Bad as Buchholz Was, Don't Expect Change Soon At Least Edward Mujica Looks Like He Could Replace Koji Any Chance Clay Can Come Up with a Stiff Neck Today? Breaking: Red Sox Gray 'I'm the Ace' T-Shirt Is Missing! And Speeding Up the Game Took Four Hours

"Whenever your team gives you a four-run lead you're supposed to come out a lot better than that. Went out there with a game plan of throwing strikes, let them put the ball in play and get outs. Walked the first guy. All the contact that they made - they hit the ball hard and it wasn't at any of our players in the field. I have to do a lot better job than that." -- Clay 'Captain Obvious' Buchholz

"The light goes on for most guys, or you click and figure it out, or it's something you never get. He's not going to be a 1, that's just not going to happen. It's not part of his makeup." -- Curt Schilling crushes Clay on WEEI
