Through five innings tonight, a couple of thoughts.
It is still hard to believe that my beloved Red Sox flash such leather. The play by Lowell throwing from his butt was impressive.
I'm sure glad whoever was running the front office was able to veto John Henry who allegedly wanted to sign Burnett rather than trade for Beckett. AJ just looks like a guy getting ready to give up the big hit. And Beckett looks good firing those mid 90 BBs toward homeplate.
And Josh is one guy you want on your team. Imagine how much we would hate him in pinstripes. I love how its okay for Beckett to yell at Hillenbrand and Howard for not playing the game right and/or showing him up, but its okay for him to scream profanities, bounce around and pump his fists after a strikeout.
