Beckett pushed back again
As a lot of us sort of suspected, Josh Beckett won’t pitch Tuesday against the Yankees. Instead, it appears as though Wake will make his return that night, and the latest on Beckett is that he’s penciled in for Friday against the White Sox.
Also, it came to light today that numbness in two of the fingers is not the only symptom for Beckett. He also has some inflammation in the elbow. As most of you faithful readers have probably noticed, I’ve been wondering all year about Beckett, suspecting that there must have been a reason for his dip from last season. This would explain a lot.
J.D. Drew is out of the lineup again with that ailing back. It wouldn’t shock me if he goes on the DL. I’m sure Theo is hammering the phones trying to find a productive bat. Brian Giles would have looked pretty good right now, eh?
