Beckett injures oblique in bullpen session, pushed back to Game 3

Hello everyone,

ESPN is reporting that Josh Beckett injured his oblique in a bullpen session and will not start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Angels.  Tentatively, he's now scheduled to start Game 3 of the ALDS when the series moves to Boston.

Since Dice-K started in Sunday's first game and would only have 2 days' rest, I presume Jon Lester will start Game 1 (maybe it will be Wakefield, but it's likelier to be Lester). 

This could be a big blow to the Red Sox, since oblique injuries often linger, especially when the weather starts changing like it often does this time of the year in the NE.
