It’s almost time. Friday Matt Clement said something with confidence. Then Curt let loose 102 pitches in one of his last appearances before the regular season starts, striking out ten. Next? Keith Foulke makes his second consecutive lights-out appearance. And just this afternoon Josh Beckett aired it out for six, with Craig Hansen shutting the door. We don’t put much stock in Spring Training results, as the games don’t count and the lineups are all over the place, but it is at least worth noting that the Sox’ heavily question-marked pitching staff seems to be rounding into shape. There’s no way of knowing how healthy everyone will be over the long haul — we’re placing no bets — but at least it looks like there will be a very strong runner in the blocks when the starter’s gun is fired.
