Clay Bucholz was sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket and will not be with the Red Sox as they open the season tomorrow. Bucholz shouldn’t be too upset, however. He is dating Penthouse Pet of the Year Erica Elyson.
As a girlfriend, Elyson is not eligible for Fantasy Baseball Dugout’s Baseball’s Hottest Wives contest for 2009. We are hoping, however, that she’s in the competition for the 2010 season and that Bucholz gets a chance with a very deep Red Sox pitching staff.
