An interview with Terry Francona
Red Sox manager looks forward to Game 3 of ALCS
I know you just got here, but since someone will have to ask it, is there anything new with Josh Beckett?TERRY FRANCONA: No, and I actually didn't just get here. I've been here for a while. No. He feels pretty good physically. We spent a few minutes with him a little bit ago just trying to go through what his day will be like today because today is a big workday. And again, just to double check and make sure he's okay, because as we all know, when guys are competing, guys will fib or try to get through it. No, he's fine. He's certainly battling some consistency issues, and I think some of that is having some of your starts interrupted and then having the oblique a couple weeks ago. You know, it's been a battle for him.
