Pitchers & Catchers Report to Ft. Myers

Clunker

The most emotional win of the season last night is followed by...an absolute stinker pitched by Josh Beckett.

The pitcher with the second most odious contract of any Sox hurler (after that guy who had Tommy John surgery late last year, his name currently escapes me) gave up two runs in the first (is that a new rule on the Sox, you must give up first inning runs?) and two in the second, and the Red Sox were gone for the night.

The immortal Aaron Laffey was on the mound for the Toronto Blue Jays, and they couldn't do a thing with him. Another guy they make look like Sandy Koufax. The Jays are all banged up, and were just swept in New York.

6-1, Toronto.

I really thought last night's big time win could be the beginning of better things to come.

Not with crappy efforts like this.

Beckett continues to keep memories of  last September alive in the minds of Red Sox fans.
