BOSTON (CBS) – Clay Buchholz just went through a frightening ordeal, spending five days in the hospital fighting esophagitis. Given what happened last season with all the “chicken and beer” shenanigans, one would think the Red Sox players — especially their pitchers — would take every step to stay out of the “bad” spotlight.Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Reports surfaced Thursday morning that less than a day after being released from the hospital, Buchholz was at a charity pool party at Foxwoods Casino. Buchholz was released from Massachusetts General Hospital on Tuesday after spending five days there, including some time in intensive care.Now he’ll have more questions to answer about the perception of a player recovering from illness not travelling with his team, but to a casino in Connecticut instead.
Clay Bucholz has to be the dumbest motherfucker on the planet right? Just flat out the dumbest motherfucker on the planet. I mean there is no other way to describe this move. He already saw the shitstorm that happened when he went golfing with Beckett when Beckett was hurt and now 10 seconds after getting released from the hospital he’s partying it up at Foxwoods. Just incredibly stupid. It has nothing to do with whether this effected his body or anything like that. Obviously the guy was sick. Nobody is doubting that. But it’s all public perception. He had to know this would look bad and he just didn’t give a shit. It’s giving the fans a big fuck you. Same thing Beckett did when he refused to apologize and said his off day is his off day. No it’s not bro. You get paid millions upon millions of dollars to play a kids game. At least pretend like you give a fuck. Like it’s not that hard. “Hey Clay you want to come to a pool party at foxwoods? Nah man I just got out of the hospital 3 seconds ago and got put on the 15 day DL. Probably sit this one out. ” Boom bone.
