You couldn't do it. You couldn't do a fraction of what they do on your best day.
And it sounds like your opinion is based more on bitterness than reality. you have no idea what beckett had to do to get ready to play after he hurt his ankle. You have no idea what Lackey was doing to get his arm ready to play.
But you'll dump on the best pitcher the red sox had last year because he makes money.
I wonder who the highest paid members of the Red Sox are. The players? Or maybe it's ownership. You know, the guys that keep squeezing seats into Fenway so that the seats that didn't have an obstructed view are now super uncomfortable. The guys who have jacked up the cost of a bottle of water to something north of $5. These guys who delay and delay calling rain outs until the fans have bought thier hot dogs and had their beers.
Seriously. You think Beckett eating chicken and having a beer in the clubhouse on his off days caused the collapse in September.
Forget about the road trips and the rain outs. Do you really think the people who put together a rotation with Lackey, Wakefield, bedard, and Miller are blameless? They were calling up guys from pawtucket to pitch in September, in a pennant race for christ sakes. there was talk of them having to sign a player to pitch the last game of the season.
But you think it's all beckett's fault.
Without beckett, that team isn't even in the race for the post season.
Beckett had a cy young worthy season last year until he sprained his ankle. And that's the guy you want to dump on.
I can see dumping on Lester because he had no excuse. Beckett was hurt. But Lester wasn't. And Lester had a worse September than Beckett.
But again, whose fault is it that the only legit starter that wasn't hurt was lester?
They had a rotation with Wakefield, Miller, bedard, and a broken down Lackey, and some how it's Beckett's fault. Makes no sense to me.
Dice K went down and they did nothing. Lackey was in need of TJ surgery, and they did nothing. Buch breaks a bone in his back and after many weeks of wringing there hands, the get Bedard. And when they don't make the post season somehow it's because of Tito and Beckett.
Sorry, not buying the BS being put out by ownership. not buying their overpriced junk at Fenway and not buying the BS they put out about Tito and beckett.
Theo thought the whole thing stunk so bad that he got out of boston as fast as he could. They brought in Tito's medical issues and his divorce as reasons why the team collapsed. They made Tito serve up a Sh*t sandwich and then blamed it on Tito's divorce and Beckett eating Chicken. And you believe them.
