  • I don't like the fact that Beckett is getting game 2 and Lester is getting game 3. I know Beckett has the track record but Lester has been lights out this postseason and I think he has earned the right to start game 2. Francona knows what he's doing so I won't blast him too bad but I would just like to see Lester ahead of Beckett in the rotation at this point.

    • I think it is wise to give "Mr. Consistency" an extra days rest.

        They're going to be very tough though. They know how to provide timely hitting and good pitching.
        I stand corrected. They did one time. Here is a list of games this year and the starting pitchers:

        4/26 @TB L4-5 Wakefield vs. Garza
        4/27 L1-2 Bucholz vs. Jackson
        4/28 L0-3 Beckett vs. Shields

        5/2 home W7-3 Bucholz vs. Jackson
        5/3 W12-4 Beckett vs. Shields
        5/4 W7-3 Lester vs. Kazmir

        6/3 home W7-4 Masterson vs. Garza
        6/4 W5-1 Beckett vs. Jackson
        6/5 W7-1 Lester vs. Shields

        6/30 @TB L4-5 Masterson vs. Shields
        7/1 L1-3 Wakefield vs. Garza
        7/2 L6-7 Dice K vs. Kazmir

        9/9 home W3-0 Lester vs. Jackson
        9/10 L4-5 Dice K vs. Kazmir
        9/11 L2-4 Beckett vs. Sonnenstine

        9/15 @TB W13-5 Dice K vs. Kazmir
        9/16 L1-2 Beckett vs. Sonnenstine
        9/17 L3-10 Wakefield vs. Garza

        On a side note, when we lost, Rays hammered our relief pitching.

          Lester would have had full rest had he pitched game 2. No need to hold him back to game 3 IMO.

          • Maybe Tito did it so he could pitch at Fenway.

                    Red Sox make Shields throw a lot of pitches on top of the 1st but get nothing across. Drew will make amends later.

                    Dice-K walks first batter he faces.

                    1 out bottom of the 1st....

                        Huge win last night and a big opportunity tonight. Let's hope Beckett gets back on track.

                          • We deserved to lose that game last night with Francona's moronic decision to put Timlin in. WTH was he thinking? I knew the game was over when I saw him take the mound in the 11th. I love Francona but he is just plain awful at managing his bullpen at times. And it appears that my earlier post about Beckett was right. He has absolutely nothing left this season. If we are going to win the WS, we'll have to do it without playoff Beckett.

                              True. I dozed off after I saw Timlin come in and walk the first batter. I couldn't bear to watch it.

                              I woke up several hours later and checked the final score and wasn't surprised in the least bit.

                              • As much as I hate to admit it, but I had a bad feeiling when Timlin came in. I do still have faith in Beckett. LET'S GO RED SOX!!!
