Franklin Morales Is Getting a Start? Is This a Joke?
Josh Beckett has been scratched from Sunday's start with shoulder inflammation. His 4.14 ERA will have to wait another week to get even worse.
The bad news? Rather than call someone up from the minors, Bobby Valentine has chosen to give reliever Franklin Morales the nod. His ERA is just over 3, which is miraculous for this pitching staff.
Where's the white flag? Can somebody take the Magic 8-Ball away from Bobby V so he actually thinks when making these decisions? That's not to say I'm anti-Valentine, but this move seems like he just drew names out of a hat.
Not like the Sox will be on ESPN for the game Sunday night, no chance at being embarrassed on national TV...
