The last memory I have of Red Sox baseball that actually matters is watching the Tampa Bay Rays eliminate the boys in Game 7 of the ALCS last fall.
Forget the WBC and Spring Training and even tonight's game that just ended with the Mets beating the Old Towne Team in the debut game at Citi Field, even though I watched it 'till the bitter end and want K-Rod to step on a sprinkler head around 1 pm tomorrow.
Come Monday Beckett will be on the bump, Fenway will be rocking, and hopefully the Rays will be put back in their place as the door stop of the AL East.
And all that talk about possible rain outs I've been reading?
Josh Beckett won't allow it.
