He is a former major league pitcher, the Major League Baseball Players Association Director of Player Development, and the former Red Sox sports psychology coach.
Buchholz spoke with him at length on Wednesday, a guy he has talked to in the past about getting through mental struggles on the mound.
"Anyone that can pitch as long as he can [13 years] in the big leagues at 85 miles per hour, has to have a good mental side of the game. He’s a good guy to pick at and just ask him through the ups and downs that he went through how he prepared and how he got through it and he obviously got through.”
Let us all hope so Red Sox Nation.
Let us all hope Buchholz has daily chats with Bob, for the next 15 days.
