BOSTON -- Josh Beckett was scratched from his start on Tuesday because of illness. Right-hander Alfredo Aceves will start in his place.

Beckett hasnt felt good the last couple of days, Francona said. He was going to go home and see if he felt better. The more we were thinking about it, we kind of said, 'You know what, this is silly. Youre that sick and kind of worried about pitching tomorrow.' Im not sure how good he would feel anyway.

We stayed away from Aceves in Mondays game. We didnt need him anyway, but we were going to stay away.
