The less said about the horrific, putrid effort on Sunday from the team who calls themselves the defending World Series champions the better.
But Jerry Remy wondered aloud during the disasterous first inning whether or not Josh Beckett was hiding an injury. Beckett was getting hammered with his fastball, then decided to start nibbling, then had to come back in again. He wound up surrendering six runs in the first, and started a really long day for all Red Sox fans. Beckett was terrific in his last two starts against Kansas City and Chicago, but looked like he belonged back in the minors today.
Thanks also, Josh, for destroying my ERA and WHIP categories in my fantasy league for this week.
