Clay Buchholz deserves to sit on the Iron Throne at the moment

Clay Buchholz is 3-6, but that's only because the Red Sox don't score when he pitches.  Boston has plated exactly one run in five of his last six starts, and seven of 11 overall.  Because of this, it's easy to miss how good Buchholz has been lately.  Despite a 1-2 record, over his past four outings Buchholz has lasted an average of 7.2 innings per game with an ERA of 1.47 and a WHIP of 0.75.  He's also held opposing hitters to a .171 batting average and a .216 on-base percentage during that stretch.

On another note, there's something else I've been meaning to mention ever since I saw the very first episode of Game of Thrones four years ago: Theon Greyjoy is Buchholz's identical twin.


Game of Thrones' best scene yet (although I'm guessing you'll think LESS of it than I do)

Another athlete/actor doppleganger scenario.
