Those 3 will be the Red Sox starting pitchers in the first 3 games of the ALDS playoff series, but in what order? While a lot of people are lobbying for the order to be Beckett, Lester & Daisuke, not me.
With Lester going 11-1 at home this season, you pitch him game 1 so you can pitch him again in game 4 at home. Then you pitch Beckett in game 2 so you have him ready for a deciding game 5. Daisuke and his 18-3 record wil fit nicely in game 3 at Fenway where his only loss this year was todays meaningless game against the Yankees where he pitched good enough to win but got no support.
The official decision should come in the next 24 hours-hope they read my blog.
