Beckett Forgets How To Pitch

The struggles continued for Josh Beckett last night. I knew it was going to be a long night when Carl Crawford took Beckett yard in the first inning. Beckett's last handful of starts have been abysmal. A potential 20-win season is quickly coming unglued. The homeruns he's allowing are unbelievable; 12, I think, in his last five starts. He had 10 total on the season previous to that.

Where does that leave the Sox? The fans consolation to this point was that at least we had Beckett and Lester. If we don't have the two of them, it will be an early exit in the playoffs or maybe even no playoffs at all. Josh needs to get himself right and quick.

Beckett looks tired to me and I think it would benefit him and the sox to miss a start before the end of the season when they pull away from the Rangers, hopefully.
