Couldn't tell if that was a smirk or a grimace on Josh Beckett's face.
Either way, that is one tough guy.
When I turned on the game, like you, I was watching a Steve Harvey show with apologies from Turner Broadcasting Company supered at the bottom.
Same thing with Beckett.
He's got something wrong with his "oblique", which is the muscle (or muscles) on your side, next to your stomach.
So he can't throw full velocity.
But we all remember the guy when he was on the Marlins in '03.
Like he was born for post-season play.
He gave up a couple homers, sat through a 15 minute umpire-injury delay, but mostly just won on breaking balls and guts.
Awesome game to watch.
When they showed the replay of Upton's homer (the one we missed while Steve Harvey was on), they had to use this magnifying glass effect to show us the ball mostly because the background is white, but also because it was so high and moving so fast.
He creamed that thing.
Youkilis jacked one.
And Boston's Captain, Jason Varitek, hit one out too.
I think he was oh for forever in 2008 playoffs, so a giant boost for the Red Sox.
But I was hoping for some real baseball, and they delivered.
And in a couple hours, it'll be the Bears vs. the Vikes and then tonight Boston/Tampa game 7.
