07:24 AM ET 10.18 | Josh Beckett left Game One with some stiffness in the back of his right shoulder, but the Red Sox don't have any concerns about his readiness for tonight's Game Five assignment in the ALCS. But without divulging exactly what Beckett is coping with, Terry Francona left little doubt that he would be ready to make his start. In fact, had Game Four been rained out and played last night, Beckett would have started that game. Beckett avoided directly answering a question about whether he could have physically made his start Tuesday night, saying only that he completely supported the decision to go with Tim Wakefield.
