Globe 10.0: Worried about Sox starting pitching?

In the latest episode of Globe 10.0, columnists Bob Ryan and Dan Shaughnessy debate whether starting pitching is still a strength of the Red Sox even though their ERA from starters ranks 27th out of 30 major league teams.

Particularly, Ryan and Shaughnessy discuss whether they are worried about staff aces Jon Lester (6.51 ERA) and Josh Beckett (5.85 ERA). Ryan and Shaughnessy agreed that they thought Lester, who starts tonight, would bounce back and be much more consistent the rest of the season, but Bob wasn’t so sure about Beckett.

“Josh Beckett remains in my mind a colossal tease,” Ryan said.
