Beckett postgame

"Obviously the numbers aren't good but I felt strong out there... I don't think it was just early on [that every pitch was up], I think it was the whole time. Need to get my fingers on top of the ball." -- Josh Beckett ... there are lies, damn lies, and Beckett's postgame statements

"Great comeback. Guys battled all day long, just did a fabulous job... [Beckett] made some good pitches and some not so good pitches. He finished the fifth inning pretty good..." -- Bobby Valentine just playing out the string, talking the company cliches
