    Why would that be j-bay..More than one ID makes you a phony and a fraud?...So you are okay with that kind of personal bashing...Or is it one's politics that makes a person that way..? Namely, if you are on the opposite end of the right-wing, conservative spectrum that dgale embraces.....You know nothing about me, or the life I lead, but you are ready to agree that I am a phony and a fraud...I have a full life beyond this forum, and I have enjoyed being on here while it lasted....I will not miss the gratuitous personal attacks on here that people seem to revel in...It says a lot about the people doing the attacking, as well as the individuals lining up behind them to join in the fest...

    Sort of helps when you throw a batting practice fastball down the center of the plate twice to the same guy.

    It would be, because I happen to agree with him. You're disingenuous, at best. 
    just my opinion, mind you.

    Just another craptastic game for Beckett.  6 innings, 4 earned runs, 7 hits, 3 walks.  Pretty much in line with his 2012 numbers.

    my fear with that is, he'll do what it takes to show Boston they were wrong to trade him. the ultimate middle finger. that said, this season has been like no other for Beckett. He admitted he's embarrassed. I think he may finally realize he needs to do more than he's had to, in the past. Also, an even year, FWIW

    I think he realizes he has to do better - I just don't think he can anymore.  He has lost too much off of his fastball and does not command his pitches that well anymore.  Bottom line is that he is not living up to what his contract is paying him.

    At least Josh Beckett kept Suzuki off the bases after Ichiro had two singles and two stolen bases off Beckett and Jarrod Saltalamacchia in a 5-0 Red Sox win over the Seattle Mariners on May 15 at Fenway:

    ... and two singles and another stolen base off the same duo in Seattle's 3-2 win on June 30 at Safeco Field:

    And let us not forget that the Sox might have been able to sign Curoda, but passed on him. Brilliant.

     he's depended on his fast ball in the past, that's gone and not coming back. he needs to learn how to "pitch", not just throw. if he can and gets into better condition, he can still be effective

    That was one of the key signings of the offseason.  He's been huge for the Yankees, one of their MVP's I'd say.

    Beckett needs to get on a serious diet and get a unrelenting trainer.

    I do agree with you that he needs to become a pitcher and that he can do it.  King Fellix had to adjust to the loss of a few mph off his fastball and now he is a true pitcher...and one I wish was on the Sox roster...wishful thinking.

    The Red Sox passed on signing any starting pitchers at all.
