We've got a nice pitching matchup today: The Doc vs. the Wounded. Fitting, huh?
Josh Beckett makes his season debut after back spasms during spring training. For the Jays, it's one of the best in the game, Roy Halladay. Halladay lost his first game of the season after going 7 innings and giving up just 3 runs.
|2008 - Roy Halladay||0-1||3.86||1.29||3||2|
Some people are curious if Beckett is healthy enough. I've got to think that if Beckett wasn't fully ready to go then he wouldn't be pitching in today's game. I expect some good things out of Beckett today.
