    Mr. Francona: Handle Josh Beckett With Care-We need him in October! 13xs on disabled list

    Josh Beckett threw 125 pitches in eight innings against the Angels Thursday night. But it’s important to note that the road to a championship includes a healthy Beckett in October. This means that Terry has to be careful not to overextend Josh.

    Let’s look at his disabled list history:

    If Francona had taken Beckett out earlier we'd hear about how he babies his pitchers and how if Beckett was a true ace he should be able to go 8 or 9 innings easily, etc. 

    The truth is, Francona (and the team) will never be able to please some people.

    So a blister = equals 125 pitches.  Christ.  No one is ever happy.

    What is history of being injured? Prior to last year's injury, he's averaged over 30 starts per year in the previous 5 years.

    Do these injuries relate to too many pitches.  maybe he should have been stretched out further.

    I just emailed a copy of the OP to Tito, Theo, Lucchino, Werner, and Henry. We need more fans like Fireballer who have such a strong passion. I suggest that the invisible bumper keep this thread on page #1 for several weeks. I would hate to see Beckett ruined with such terrible moves by Francona. Good job  Fireballer.

    fireballer58 doesn't know squat about managing pitchers or, for that matter, managing to win games.   Leaving Beckett in that extra inning is what made it possible to win that 11 inning game.  Plus Beckett felt fine and was throwing well.

    And the manager knows how manage the season and actually get the team to October.  You sit  at your computer typing drivel thinking you know more than the organization about the player and his health.  You are delusional.
