Swing, and a Miss
Beckett Went Deep When It Mattered,
But Came Up Short Where It Counts
Can't Sweep 'Em All | Philadelphia 11, Boston 6
Up, Up, and Away Goes the Lead for Beckett, Then He Stepped Up to the Plate
So Should Beckett and His 394-Foot-Bombs Be DH'ing Against Lefties?
'Pen Adds to the Problem: Bad Outing for Bard, Saito Stunk, Too
Forgotten in the Loss: Baldelli and Green Go Back-to-Back
"We feel pretty good about it. Obviously, today wasn't very good. But 9-3, I think we'll take it." -- 6.14.09, Jacoby Ellsbury
"What a dump of a performance yesterday. Beckett looked like absolute crap, Francona decided to give players 2 days off. Were we out partying last night? For the kind of money we pay these players, the only thing on their minds should have been PUMMELING the Phillies at all costs Sunday and finish them off with a demoralizing sweep. Champions FIND a PATH and DEMORALIZE their opponents with sweeps." -- E-mailer Josh D.
