Josh Beckett will return on Friday, hoping to save the Sox during the monumental match up against the Rays. Boston is only 3 games ahead of Tampa Bay after last night’s horrific loss. Enter Josh Beckett.
Beckett has been our most consistent pitcher all year. He bounced back quickly from his ankle sprain, so hopefully that means it wasn’t too serious. The Red Sox are banking on strong performances from Beckett Friday and Jon Lester on Saturday to take control of this series. If the Sox can win the next 2 Games, that would halt the mass hysteria and panic that is circulating through the Boston area.
Red Sox Nation, keep believing in Boston. We did it blindly for 86 years, so we can do it for 2 more weeks.
