I retired with a 4-0 lead. Talk about blown away with five unanswered runs. Tex with another 3-run jack, but the bats fell silent. CC with seven frames this early in the season?

All for naught. Bullpen selection for the 8th inning needs to be reviewed. Now (3-2).

Beckett vs Sabathia.

Runs should be scored. I'm talking Yankee runs.

They take this game and Boston starts the season as a 1-8 team.

Beckett looked sharp yesterday, no doubt!

I was hoping and expecting the Beckett from last year.

Enjoy the victory, you guys definitely needed it.

I cheer for neither of the ESPN teams. I do enjoy seeing both teams fans suffer though. Schadenfreude

Go Rockies!

(5-4) The Beckett/Sabathia matchup was outstanding, but Beckett prevailed going 8 frames and gaining the shutout. Ten K's and two walks. Chamberlain got us out of trouble in the 6th, but collapsed in the 7th thus ending the chance for a 2 out of 3 series.

Boston stranded 16 runners...........................way to high.

We'll be back.

Looking forward to the series with the Orioles.

Beckett is the BoSox version of Burnett. They both have potentially filthy stuff, but are as likely to give up 5+ runs as they are 2. Both overrated as a stud pitcher as well.

The difference between Burnett and Beckett in my mind, is that Burnett is fragile emotionally, and looks like he is going to cry when he gets shelled. Beckett is a tough SOB, and responds his next outing. AJ makes me laugh, kind of like Peyton M., with the exasperated look.

A perfect analysis! That's why Beckett has such an arrogant look..............he is unfazed by the outcome with zero emotion. Burnett is just a head case.

i mean, that's a nice reputation to have and all, but looking at their game logs shows that's not really true (the responding the next outing part). sure, beckett looks tougher when he's getting battered. but the results are the same.

Hmmm. It must be the face Burnett makes then. And the fact that he's a Yankee!
