UPDATE:  If you believe Bobby Valentine, it seems that maybe it’s not too bad:

10:29 AM:  Josh Beckett has an issue with his thumb and that may cause Alfredo Aceves to take his Game 2 start.  We know this because Aceves said so:

No word yet on what the thumb issue is or how long it could keep Beckett out, but he is leaving Florida for San Antonio to get it checked out.
