‘Nah, not a big win at all.’

“I think I won here in the playoffs,” he said, straight-faced. “It’s not my first win at Progressive Field. Those wins (in October) are bigger anyway, aren’t they?”

“Nah, not a big win at all,” Beckett said sarcastically on his way out of Boston’s clubhouse.

How can you NOT love this man?

In less than an hour, the “ace,” Jon Lester hits the mound- and remember how we’re .5 behind? Not if Lester can help it.

Here’s to hoping he can help it! It’s all about execution.

“I’m just not executing pitches,” said Lester of his last outing. “I’m not going to change anything, not going to the drawing board. It’s just a matter of executing pitches. I haven’t done that the last three starts.”

Let’s also keep an extra-protective eye on Pedroia- set to make his first start since the ankle hiccup.

PS- Cockiness aside, who doesn’t love Asdrubal’s name?

PSS- Lackey watch 2011 update: The Lackluster sloth of the mound could be back as early as June 5. What do you think, people? Can Lackey change? Can anyone really change? Once a flake always a flake? Can we learn to trust Slackey? We’ve been hurt before…

PSSS- Jenks watch 2011 update: Never fear, Tito‘s got our backs. Tito says he’ll likely pitch for the minors before being allowed back on our mound. Crisis averted. FOR NOW.

PSSSS- I love you, Jason Varitek.

PSSSSS Having a lousy Wednesday? This image might help. Click here.

    Definition of a nice surprise. Being in the UK I forgot we started at 6 pm our time, and just remembered reading your post. Switching on with the score 14-0! Lovely.

    Better not blow it from here boys!

    Yes, how can you not love Beckett? Of course, he IS from Texas, isn’t he?
