Amalie Benjamin, Globe Staff wrote:Witness the pregame frustration for Josh Beckett, who missed out on his fourth start of the season, coming up with a stiff neck yesterday afternoon. With the Red Sox on alert because of Beckett's bout with the current clubhouse illness - it has also hit Manny Delcarmen and Jason Varitek, along with a couple of coaches - the starter turned up with the unanticipated neck problem, leading to a bit of a change. David Pauley, already waiting in a Boston hotel, got the word around 4 p.m. that he would be the night's starter.

"We were worried about Beckett the last couple days because he had been sick," said manager Terry Francona before the game. "He showed up today and we had talked to him last night and this morning, and that was not an issue, but his neck got real stiff.

"Whether it's related or not, how do you know? But we're not going to run him out there and have him potentially hurt his shoulder because he's got a stiff neck."

After the game, Francona said his guess would be that Beckett's turn in the rotation would be skipped, keeping him on his normal day, which would be Sunday against Tampa Bay. But there will be another evaluation today.
