If I were to write a story about Josh Beckett, that would be the beginning of one of the really fun chapters. Don't worry, I'm not writing a story about Beckett... yet.... so I won't torment you with any more silly paragraphs like that one.
Wasn't it fun, though? The win, I mean. I thought the win was loads of fun. Aside from Beckett's pitch count being as hard to manage as my hair during the last month of rainy weather, the Papelbon-surrendered home run, and everyone on our pitching staff trying to kill OC, it was a great win!Beckett, in regards to Tek:
"He's always helping me, but when he can throw somebody out and on a night when my breaking stuff's not my best, it keeps me from throwing more pitches," said Beckett. "I think he's been putting together some pretty good at-bats."I think he has, too, Josh. I think he has, too.
Lester vs. Talbot today... If he wins, we could be tied for first place for at least a few hours... and if the Yankees lose tonight, well then, that baby is ours. Do it, Jon. We're behind you.
