Looks like Beckett and Saltalamacchia are going to get along just fine after all.

Joshy threw three scoreless innings against the Cardinals today, and he only needed 30 pitches to get those 9 outs.  While he didn't strike anyone out, he didn't walk anyone either.  Pair that with his last outing (2 IP, 1 hit, 2 BB), and I don't see any reason to question their chemistry at this point. 

Hopefully we can put the Beckett-Salty worries to bed now.  At least until his first start when Beckett shakes off Salty for 26 consecutive minutes. 

And in even better news, everybody's favorite shortstop Jose Iglesias is having one hell of a day too.  I'll let NESN's Didier Morais provide the details:

Bottom 2nd: This was the Jose Iglesias inning. The shortstop was all over the place making strong defensive plays.

He made a sliding stop at shortstop and threw a laser to first to get David Freese out. That was some range.

Then, he rushed all the way in front of Dustin Pedroia at second base to scoop Matt Adams' grounder and toss him out. Highlight-reel stuff.

Mid 8th, 3-3: Jose Iglesias answered back with a three-tun triple of his own -- down the right field line -- to deadlock it.

Making Sportscenter-highlight caliber plays in the field.  Bashing three-run triples.  Jose Iglesias is the greatest shortstop in the history of athletics.  NO ONE DENIES THIS!
