Beckett's test come back clean....thank god

Breaking news indicates that Josh Beckett's tests with Dr. James Andrews have come back clean. Although he was put on the 15 day DL earlier today, it is retroactive to August 18th and Beckett is "expected to" start on September 5th against Texas. Red Sox Nation can let out a small, guarded sigh of relief with this news, but it is still a up hill mental battle Beckett has to face going forward.

Regardless, this team might be resilient enough to get to the playoffs without Josh Becket, but getting to the World Series is simply not possible without one of the best "big game" pitchers of all time (reference his stats from the playoffs in 2003 and 2007...just unreal).


In prep for tonight's big game in the Fens....here is Boston's lineup...
1. Mark Kotsay, RF

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

3. David Ortiz, DH

4. Kevin Youkilis, 1B

5. Jason Bay, LF

6. Jed Lowrie, 3B

7. Coco Crisp, CF

8. Alex Cora, SS

9. Jason Varitek, C-


- Daisuke Matsuzaka, SP


Go Sox.

Good news...but i'm not going to get my hopes up for his Sept. 5th start...i'll believe it when i see it.

Coco is out of the lineup (sick) and Jacoby is in.....and on the first pitch of the game he makes an impact....great diving catch.

(I must admit I was a little nervous about his complete disregard for where Mark Kotsay was...just a straight out dive)
