BeckettJosh Beckett has been scratched from his start on Tuesday, and Alfredo Aceves will go in his place.

The AL leader in ERA with a 1.62 mark, Beckett has "intestinal turmoil," according to manager Terry Francona. Let's call a spade a spade: He's sick.

"He hasn't felt good the last couple of days," Francona said, according to WEEI. "He was going to go home and see if he felt better. The more we thought about it, before he got out of here, we said, 'You know what? This is silly. If you're that sick, you're kind of worried about pitching tomorrow, I'm not sure how good he'd feel anyway.'"

Beckett could simpy be pushed back a day or two as he gets over his sickness or have his start skipped. The Red Sox will likely play that by ear, as they want Beckett's arm in the game. There is an off-day Thursday, so skipping a start would push Beckett's return beyond what they may be comfortable with. There are several directions the Sox could go; the most likely scenario has Beckett either pushing John Lackey's start back to Friday from Wednesday or Beckett kicking off the Pirates series on Friday.

Aceves will make his fourth start for the BoSox and has already made 15 appearances out of the bullpen. Over 43 2/3 innings, Aceves has a 3.30 ERA while walking 16 and striking out 25.

The art of prophesy is timing.  Thank you, Dirt.     Beating up on Padres may have annoyed some old testiment brimstone.   Watch for frogs, red dirty water, locusts and famine.   Is it time for a meltdown yet?     ...Just askin'.
