I called it a few days ago. I said that every Josh Beckett (and Jon Lester) start will be automatic losses from here on out. The dude absolutely, unequivocally sucks.
Sure, he "only" gave up 5 runs, but he blew a two run lead in the 4th inning and blew the lead again in the 7th with a wild pitch. Now I understand why the Red Sox offense sometimes gets a case of limp dick when he is pitching. Its got to be tough getting it up knowing that the dude is just going to squander it.
Will Middlebrooks and Dustin Pedroia each hit solo home runs, so they deserve a nice golf clap, but the Red Sox only had 5 hits overall.
I dont mean to be a Debbie Downer, but the A's, Angels, Tigers, Rays and White Sox all won on Wednesday night. So the Red Sox have sunk a little deeper into the abyss. On the bright side, Patriots Training Camp opens on Thursday!
