Josh Beckett is the unquestioned No. 1 starter and has had a spectacular season, leading the majors in wins with 20. Beckett's postseason credentials are not to be questioned; in 2003, he had a 2.11 ERA in the playoffs, winning the World Series MVP with the Florida Marlins. The Sox traded for him believing that he could bring that postseason magic with him. This year, he'll get the chance to deliver.
