Bring it like Beckett
It's official. Barring some extenuating circumstances where the world gets taken over by alien rodents that elect him as their leader (or some sort of trade), Josh Beckett will be in a Red Sox uniform until 2014.
Though the fierce Texan didn't have his best stuff last night, I'm ecstatic to see him at Fenway in the foreseeable future, preferably telling Heidi Watney to shut her pie-hole and get out of his way. In all seriousness, Josh Beckett's signing means that for the next three years (at least) the Red Sox will have a 1-2-3 of him, Jon Lester, and John Lackey. Daisuke will be here too (unless his arm flies off while he's attempting to comb his hair, or something equally ridiculous), and Clay Buchholz is under Red Sox control until after the 2012 season. This rotation is absurdly stacked, and I like it a lot.
