What will the Sox starting rotation look like in 2015? That’s a difficult question. The “rehearsal group” which now consists of Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and Brandon Workman has produced mixed results. At this point, Buchholz, despite his maddening inconsistency, Kelly and Ranaudo seem to have the […]
