Josh Beckett Can Still Be Valuable Asset to Red Sox Rotation (Video)

Josh Beckett's outing Thursday night was anything but satisfying.

The Red Sox starter struggled through 2 1/3 innings of work before being pulled in Boston's 8-3 loss. Beckett has stirred up some controversy over the past week or so, primarily surrounding his recent golf outing.

Manager Bobby Valentine remained confident in his 31-year-old starter, though, firmly explaining that Beckett is still a very valuable asset to the Red Sox roster during Friday Night Fenway.

Check out the video above to get Valentine's perspective on Beckett, Clay Buchholz and much more.
