What’s up with Beckett?

Just one week ago Josh Beckett was the Front runner for the American League Cy Young Award. Today, he is just one of about 5 contenders. 2 More starts like his last 2 and his name won’t even be mentioned in the discussion.

As disappointing as Beckett’s performance was last Tuesday against Toronto, Sunday night’s debacle against the Yankees was, well, painful.

Most importantly, what is ahead for Beckett? What happened? Is he tired? This coming Friday he will take on Toronto, again. Beckett has had a history of struggling against the Jays. He has to end his own personal slump if the Red Sox have any chance of making the playoffs as the Wild Card team.

The good news is that The Red Sox offense appears to be hitting it’s stride . And Clay Buccholtz and Tunichi Kazawa are both pitching very well. But Beckett needs to re-find his groove.
