    Not the prettiest win, but . . . 1-0 since my prediction.

    Boras has one move - he gets the player into free agency and tries to get a bidding war to drive up the price.

    It works for the big time guys, but for the upper-middle/middle tier free agents?...

    In Clay's first start he was pitching at around 88-89 mph. That's about 3-5 mph slower than when he is "on."

    There is definite reason for concern when you see something like that.

    His velocity was way down. He was sitting at 88-89, rather than his normal 91-93.

    It's definitely concerning.

    Tough game. Seemed like a lot of balls were hit well, but caught. I recall a Bogaerts gapper that hung up a bit, a shot from Middlebrooks that was right at the CF, and the Overbay catches on Pedroia...

    My opinion is that we should, but probably won't. I think the Yankees are going to swoop in and pick him up. No way they are going to go into 2014 with their infield as it currently sits.

    The fact that he lacks ML success is not what would worry me about Tanaka. Reports that his fastball is flat are the main cause for concern.

    Personally, I did not want the Red Sox to sign Tanaka....

    If Tanaka lives up somewhat to the hype, and if CC bounces back - the Yankees might compete in 2014.

    But Jesus Christ, what a terrible business model.
