The Boston Red Sox second regular season contest is in the books. Detroit pounded Josh Beckett early and often on Saturday, as the Tigers routed the Sox, 10-0.
Here are some links, recaps and news from Saturday’s affair.
* The Tigers have two premiere studs on their team – Price Fielder and Miguel Cabrera – who are pretty darn good. And against the Sox, they assisted Detroit’s offense by providing some necessary runs.
* FoxSports.com provided an AP recap from Saturday’s contest, and it can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.
* After the game concluded, Beckett told the media that “the thumb is not an issue.” Although, despite that comment, shouldn’t Bostonians and New Englanders be a tad bit concerned about the teams’s second best pitcher?
* It’s only been two contests thus far, but according to one reporters – fans should be concerned about the Sox bullpen.
* ESPNBoston’s Gordon Edes crafted a great piece of why the Sox are in “danger of another slow start.”
