It probably wasn't so much the asking price for Buchholz, but more the history of Domrbrowski trading with the Marlins. They're still recovering after losing Miguel Cabrera almost 10 years ago.
And the Marlins are pretty stupid. I wouldn't be surprised if they sent back a Cabrera-type to the Sox.
With regard to Buchholz, I shouldn't be making fun of him after what happened yesterday. If he didn't pitch 3 hitless innings, the Sox probably don't win that game. Buchholz in the bullpen may pay large dividends for the Red Sox down the stretch. He's one of the most streaky players in MLB and after yesterday, he could get hot.
In 17.1 innings as a reliever, Buchholz has an ERA of 3.63. Not too bad.
