UPDATING BREAKING NEWS: BECKETT TO PITCH GAME 3

In Terry Francona's post game press conference he said that Jon Lester will will start game 1, Matsuzaka will start game 2, and Josh Beckett will start game 3 back in Boston.

Beckett apparently strained his oblique muscle on Friday during an indoor bullpen session.

Francona said there were discussions about pitching Beckett in game 2, but they wanted to give him as much time as possible before his next start. Tito didn't seem too concerned about the situation, so I'll sleep easy tonight.

More on this as the story develops, but it looks minor at 11pm on Sunday night.

Also the times of the first two games against the Angels have been announced. Game 1 against the Angels will be on Wednesday at 10:07 p.m. Game 2 will be played Friday at 9:37 p.m. TBS is carrying both games.

That makes me feel a little better...but i'm still shouting four letter words (mainly now because it's just fun)....can't say i'm still not worried...because I am, but time will tell.

Lester isn't a bad "back up" number one...at all.....but I still wanted Beckett going game 1 and game 4....

It's encouraging that he's going to throw a side session in Anaheim on Thursday. I mean, assuming the side session goes well. I'm just glad it's not like he's going to be on ice all week. Hopefully it's not too bad if they're bringing him over and having him throw.
