At the plate
Dustin Pedroia: Not much better than Ellsbury, but the ball seemed to pop a little better off of his bat. Pedroia did come through in the clutch on Sunday, which made the difference from selling to keeping. Look for a better series in Toronto
Josh Beckett: What the hell was that all about? Five homers? I almost wish the thumb was an issue because I don't want to believe he can pitch batting practice like that without an injury to blame it on.
