    Steve Buckley writes, according to a source, Beckett sustained an oblique injury during a bullpen session following his last start and could miss the ALDS.

    We are ****ed now.

    I hope this is just the Herald looking foolish again.

    Game 3? I guess it's better than nothing. Still, he isn't going to be anywhere near 100% and that blows.

    Just another page in the long history of Josh Beckett's injuries.

    But this isn't the end of the world. Lester has been the Ace this season, and Matsuzaka has been much better on the road than at Fenway. This is going to make it a whole lot tougher, obviosuly, but this isn't necessarily a fatal blow to their chances.

    The team medical director apparently thinks that it's minor and nothing to worry about.

    Call me concern.Now Lester and Dice K need to do the job.This team needs to basically hope to come back 1-1 and hope Beckett can pitch a good game.

    Lester and Daisuke will come through. The Bullpen needs to step up, and I believe they will.
    Now, let's pray Josh is ready by Sunday.

    the fact that beckett cant go in game one is a big deal. even if hes fine for game three.

    getting Paul Byrd just became a big pick for us...hopefully he steps up and pitches well. I still say if we do not have Beckett, we do not beat LAA...but i am hopeful.

    Haven't they beaten the Angels in something like in their last 9 appearances in the post-season against each other? I won't be too terribly worried until the Angels beat the Sox in a post-season game. I like our chances with Lester possibly pitching twice.

    These Angels aren't those Angels. They certainly aren't last years AAA playoff Angels.

    Obliques are tricky. If it's as Francona says, and simply a tingle and they stopped, then he should be ok by Sunday. However, I'm not sure he'd be bumped to Game 3 if it were so innocent and injury. Either way, the Sox should be fine with Lester and Dice-K going 1,2. Of more concern were I a Sox fan, is Lowell & Drew. Lowell especially. Will Kotsay & ??? be able to make up the loss at the plate? Plus, Lowell's D at 3rd is exceptional, and he keeps Youks great D at 1st base. Still though, I think the Sox have a very good chance of beating the Angels in a short series.
