And Alfredo Aceves Is the One Doing the Snitching:

"They say Josh Beckett, he have injury in his thumb ... [reporters: Andrew Bailey?] No. Josh Beckett. And if he don't start the second game, I will start the second game and the first game at home. That's what he [Bobby Valentine] said. And then he said, and now you're gonna be in the [rotation]. I like Felix Doubront he say, because he's lefty, hey that's his approach... they say that Bard, the organization wanted him to put give the chance so I had no chance. It don't matter how good you throw, you know, you're still not gonna pitch." -- Alfredo Aceves via sports radio WEEI
