My hero!

The heroes:

Josh Beckett.

Clearly, last week’s circa 2009 Beckster appearance was NOT a fluke. Beckett’s back. With 9 strikeouts and those sexy smirks that always piss off the opposition. His curve ball is more than a game changer. It’s a weapon. Like laser eyes. Superman has laser eyes, right?

Jed Lowrie.

And he didn’t get injured! If he can go a few more months without a cameo on the DL, maybe I’ll give him a real super hero alter ego (everyone knows Aquaman is lame. I barely know the difference between DC and Marvel and I know that). Reaching base in 10 of 13 plate appearances. Sure. Okay. I’ll ease up. A little.

Don’t get injured.


Someone read what I wrote about the irony of grounding out on your contract extension day… A single for a 1-0 lead. And the nation cheered.

Kevin Youkilis

A double to up the score and, after yesterday’s outing, it looks like our Youkie-Bear is coming out of hibernation.

Jason Varitek

When the captain is at the plate, our chance of winning increases by 325 percent. Okay, so I made up that statistic- but I’m noticing a pattern. Are you?


Awesome, awesome, awesome catch, buddy.


Offense picks up on an off-day for Crawford… coincidence?


Here’s a math question for your sixth grader.

If we get one win per Josh Beckkkkkkkkkett (<-see what I did there? You can rave on my cleverness later) outing, and there are 162 games a year, how many wins will the Sox nab in 2011?


I’m glad Fenway has its super heroes back.

Otherwise, who knows who we’d have to rely on?

    Math? Are you serious? I don’t do math. Umm every 5 days. 163??? ya no.

    We might get one or two Lester wins in there so that screws your math problem up big time.

    Becks looked tremendous. And Superman had super vision. At least that’s what they called it. I wanted it when I was a kid. But then my mom threw out all my comic books when we moved out of the house. Just to think how much they’d be worth today hurts.
