Josh Beckett... the earning of $15.75 million begins NOW

Seriously, it is time for Josh to be Josh again.

In my Star Trek movies to Josh Beckett chart, we should be due for Star Trek VI, which was good. (No really, it was.)

So let's get going... it's off to Cleveland, the site of Beckett's greatest triumph as a member of the Red Sox.

Remember? In 2007, he became the American Bad Ass! The Sox were down 3-1 and Cleveland was on the verge of winning the pennant and CC Sabathia was on the mound.

Beckett calmly and carefully reduced the Indians to rubble, forcing the series back to Boston.

He didn't care that the Indians ace was on the hill.
He didn't care that Kenny Lofton tried to pick a fight with him.
He didn't care that they brought out his ex girlfriend to sing the national anthem.

He just won.

The stakes are not as high right now, but a streak stopping loss will go a long way to putting some confidence in Beckett.

Live long and prosper, Beckett and on to the Undiscovered Country!

  2. We know the Red Sox can't replace their pitches and they shouldn’t at this point. We all know what their going through I blame the herald for putting so much pressure on them, the herald had them believing all they had to do was throw their gloves on the field. But this could have been the best thing that could happen in the long run. Winning that first game now is like playing the megabucks. But look at the good points today Lester showed himself to be what he is, one of the best lefties in the game.
