Joshua Patrick Beckett: Pitcher for Boston Red Sox, Texas boy, Muy Grande Hunter, brash and cocky, pottymouth when pushed, blisters, fastball, mature...yes I said mature.
I'll be glad to get home to Austin so I can start watching the boys play again. I hated missing the game today....mainly cos Josh was starting. I hate missing any of the games, but particularly when the Texas boy takes the mound. I missed his 14th Win of the season. Apparently it was a doozy and the he didn't have to worry about the boys hitting in fucking runs for him tonight...they did. Beckett fanned 9 Mariners in 6 2/3 innings. And apparently Beckett surprised Ibanez tonight...picking him off 2nd base ending the 3rd inning. But it's not all about Beckett....someone had to score those runs that won the game 9-2. Ortiz even stole his 2nd base due to the Mariners forgetting someone needed to cover the base. Manny hit his 19th homerun bringing in 2. Drew got a triple scoring Tiz. Oh yeah, Coco got run over by the Mariners mascot's all terrain vehicle while he was coming out of the dugout...Coco acted as if he was gonna fight him....but it's all in a day's work on the ballfield.
Austin bound tomorrow morning....and it can't get here fast enough.
