Josh BeckettJosh Beckett missed his scheduled start Tuesday and may miss his next scheduled start Saturday because of the same illness, Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters before Wednesday's afternoon game against the Padres.

"We're going to have to play this by ear," Francona said (via the Providence Journal). "Because of the off-day [Thursday], we're actually OK. There are some either-ors. [Andrew] Miller will throw a shorter side today, just in case. We don't want to run [Beckett] out there the first day he's OK. Because we know him so well, we want him to have Day 2, Day 3, Day 4. We'll see how he responds today and tomorrow."

Francona said he had no long-term concerns about Beckett, saying the pitcher has "a good, old-fashioned case of the flu."

Becket has been phenomenal this season, going 6-2 with a 1.86 ERA in 14 starts. He made just 21 starts last season. He is tentatively scheduled to start again next Tuesday at Philadelphia.

As a Pirates fan, I hope he misses his next start and then is fine for the rest of the season!!

Our hitters have trouble batting against journeymen let alone "aces."

Well let's hope this is just an illness and not a injury that the Red Sox and Beckett aren't telling us fans about.
