Despite the recent bumpy road, Sox Nation saw last night, one of the real gems of our team, and a big reason why we have been in 1st place of the AL East most of this year.
Josh Beckett became the first major league pitcher since 2005 to win 20 games, as the Sox beat the Devil Rays, 8-1.
Beckett went 6 innings, and got good run support from the guys behind him, including Papi, who was supposed to have the night off. Its just like Papi, who asked Tito that he be put IN. With this win, Beckett takes the lead as the favorite for this year's Cy Young award.
After the game, Beckett entered the clubhouse, to find (2) bottles of Dom Perignon waiting for him on ice. One from one of the clubhouse guys, the other, from Curt Schilling. All he could say is, thanks, but no thanks. Afterall, he's a beer man.
A man after my own heart.
Congrats, Josh. Its great to have you with us.
