WITH LEATHER tosses over news that Red Sox hurler Clay Buchholz has apparently been getting hot & heavy with a Penthouse Pet.
BARSTOOL SPORTS reports that Erica Ellyson was on the Howard Stern show on Tuesday, and the 2008 Penthouse Pet of the Year had said she was “banging a Red Sox player” (possibly NSFW).
The BOSTON HERALD then tuned in to WZLX on Wednesday, and heard confirmation of the coupling from Clay’s dad.
Skip Buchholz was on the Karlson & McKenzie show, and admitted that his son had spent some quality time with Ellyson:
“I know he’s met her, gone out with her, but I don’t know if you consider that dating … but hey, a boy could do worse.
It doesn’t surprise me any. Last year up in Boston he was dating a Victoria’s Secret model, so he’s moving up the ladder …. I mean, he’s got pretty good taste.”
In other words - “THAT’S MY BOY!“
But the HARTFORD COURANT notes that Clay could be starting the season not at Fenway but with Triple-A Pawtucket. And Erica might not want the social stigma of dating a minor leaguer.
So she’ll probably just have non-committal sex with him instead.
