    Terry Francona on Josh Beckett

    After throwing 58 pitches in the bullpen this afternoon, Terry Francona says that Josh Beckett will be ready to go for Friday's start against the Texas Rangers.

    It's a bit of a no-brainer to say that this is the best news of the week for the Boston Red Sox. There were very few people who believed that the Red Sox could make it through the rest of the regular season let alone the playoffs without Mr. October.

    That's right, I said it, Josh Beckett is the NEW Mr. October. No, it's not A-Rod, we never see him play in October. The new Mr. October is Josh Beckett. It was on his arm that the Red Sox took the World Series trophy back to Boston last year and it will be his arm (in tandum with Dice-K) that will bring them back to the promised land this season.

    Who would have predicted that the September matchup vs the Tampa Rays would loom so large? Right now it's the Pedroia show and Ortiz and Jason Bay and company are just along for the ride... The Sox's lineup is so much deeper and better than the Rays, but that Rays staff and bullpen is scary good! Got my $20 tickets in hand for Tuesday game (yeah I'm cheap but whatcha gonna do? I'm a sucka for the bleachers) http://www.esellout.com/ResultsGeneralAtVenue.aspx?kwds=Boston+Red+Sox&venid=21 I can't wait to see how this shakes out. The rosters expanded allow Francona the flexibility to make pitching changes and give some breathers in blowouts. The Wild Card is ours to lose...The Division is OURS TO WIN!

    RED SOX in 2008!
