AL East: Boston Bullpen Gets Hammered Again

Clay Buchholz gave up 4 runs in 5 innings but struck out 7. Kyle Snyder and Bryan Corey came in in the 5th inning and gave up 2 and 4 runs, respectively. Snyder has been suspect in two games this season. Corey has looked alright in his prior three games but was hit hard today. After the game Kyle Snyder told a Boston Globe reporter that he has been designated for assignment. Snyder is out of options.

The Boston bats were swinging, but only 2 runs were scored on 8 hits.

I think we can expect to see Buchholz pitch a little better than he did today but the bullpen is a huge liability at this point. Two errors (Lugo and Casey) don't help matters either.
