Merloni: Beckett's outing puts the pressure on Lester

Josh Beckett had a less than stellar outing on Friday night. As someone who should be a top of the line starter, the Baseball Show crew believes Beckett should be getting a much different result in his starts.

Because of Beckett's poor start, Lou Merloni believes Jon Lester will have a mountain of pressure to overcome in his start on Sunday.

"The guys that you use; Miller, Padilla, Atchison, and Melancon comes in. Those guys are likely going to be used Saturday . . . if that's the case they will be shut down for Sunday." said Merloni " Now all the pressure is on Lester. He's got to go out there and pitch seven or eight basically because of what Josh Beckett did Friday night."
