Looking for a bright spot

I choose to ignore the outcome of last night's game. Well, the outcomes of the last two games. The Sox had realistic opportunities to win both, and just couldn't cash in. Who would have thought we'd be worried about out offense at this point in the season - they've always stepped in and saved our bacon.

Instead, I'm going to remember the two bright spots from last night's game: Josh Beckett and Justin Masterson. Beckett was only in his second start since coming off the DL, and is still showing signs of rust. But he gave us a good outing - 6 hits and only one, keeping the Rays pretty much under control. And then Justin Masterson stepped in and pitched 2 no-hit innings in relief. I think he may be what we need to plug a big hole in our bullpen.

Speaking of holes....oh, Timlin.....
