    I agree with Joe.  Beckett was a very good pitcher, and even had his moments in 2012, although far too few.   To say he had one good season in Boston 6 years ago shows the essence of whiny fandom.

     

     

    He was outstanding in 2009 and 2011 (the year he had career low ERA and WHIP in 103IP).  Yes, he only had 13 wins.  But then the AL Cy Young that year went to a guy with only 14...

    Until he slipped off the mound in TO in 2011, he had a 2.49 ERA with a whip < 1.00 and a .579 OPSa.  Verlander had much better run support, hence a better record, but park-adjusted, he was every bit as good as Verlander at that point.

    In 2009, Beckett was 9th in WAR, 4th in wins, 2nd in winning percentage, and 3rd in complete games.

    There is a huge difference between following a team and being a fan of the team.  A true fan should kind of know this stuff.  2011, in particular, should be pretty fresh in everyone's mind, since it was Beckett slipping off the mound which probably cost us the season.

     

    Beckett$ was always part of the problem, not the solution !!!

     

     




    You mean like when he saved our season in Cleveland in 2007? Then again, you probably think we would have won without Manny.

     

     

    Maybe I should feel sorry for the guy......  I mean, did you know that he only gets "18 days off per season" ??????      Actually, I feel sorry for the L A DODGERS  !!!

     

     




    Bill must be channeling his inner-pike. Doesn't even aknowledge the check-mate you just presented to him... He just goes on a tangent about nothing.

     




    I don't think Bill's even a Red Sox fan. The only times I've ever seen him actually talk baseball on this forum it's to run down our players or former players. The rest of the time he's predicting some unspecified "blockbuster trade", obsessing over Jenny Dell or spewing tea party politics.

    Bill is not capable of posting anything of substance but he craves attention so posts nonsense followed by "What do you think?"  Typically, as with this example, he will post the same nonsense about the same issue 5-10 times....no ideas, no details, just the same old nonsense. 

    During his anti-Beckett tirades I pointed out that Beckett had had a fantastic 2011 season which good ole Bill denied.  I asked him at least 10 times why he thought Beckett had had a poor season in 2011 and he finally responded "I don't remember him winning any big games."


    But Bill wins, as you are giving him the attention he craves.

    I don't know what everyone is so hungry to call Bill out for this or that.  He's a good egg, even if he posts meaningless "blockbuster" drivel all the time.

     



    I don't think he's a bad guy the way Stiffy is, but I think it's really anti-social and very annoying when someone relentlessly posts repetetive nonsense, usually filled with political commentary.

     

    Someone once criticised me and others for not being respectful toward Bill, apparently a military veteran, to which I replied "So he can be relentlessy disrespectful toward the Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces but is himself immune to criticism?"

     



    No doubt.  Incredible hypocricy to tout one's own service as a badge of honor and then disrespect the chain of command will-nilly the way Bill does.  He deserves criticism for that. 

     

     

    If our service people could speak freely, you would be surprised to see what level of CONFIDENCE the troops have in the CIC  (campaigner in chief)

     

     



    Hey, whatever you want to call him Bill.  I can tell you take greast joy in denegrating our president.  I am merely pointing out how that reflects upon you as a soldier.

     




    Spaceman,

    I too am a Vet... and to be honest... When I left the military there have not been a whole lot of people who treated me as if I was any better than those who took the money rather than do the service. 

    I hold NO ILL will to any of you that sat behind a desk and gathered a paycheck while I was being asked by my country to run around the world and protect her ( and therefore your) interests. 

    However, now that I am no longer active duty- I ( and BILL) have a right to criticize any and every president just as much as the next person does.  Therefore, after having served for 21 years... I ( another veteran) actually respect any citizen more that is willing to question what this government is doing.... they are expressing a freedom that "I" was willing to die for if need be. 

    I understand that while I sat oversees looking at the constant diatribes against the last president all over this board.... that was acceptable due to his political views.  However, by the same token- it is therefore acceptable to question this man's objectives in doing what he is doing at this time.  I am sorry but the current man in office has lied and covered up so many things that ONLY A FOOL does not question him at this point.  Just 6 months ago he swore that if you did not make $200,000/ yr you would see no tax burden increase... but alas that was nothing but a LIE!  Just two years ago he was busy telling us all how HIS MEDICAL PLAN would save everyone money... but again- THAT WAS A LIE....  He had a covert operation going on under his purview ( Fast and Furious) I am not sure if that described the gun running operation or how the WHite House acted when they were trying to get their backsides covered by declaring executive priviledge. 

    Benghazi is a SHAME.... OUR government hung out four people to DIE... and we will never know the answers to why this occurred....  When it happened my Wife turned to me... saw the tears in My eyes, and said- "You won't be called"...   My reply to her was... "I WISH I COULD BE CALLED"... 

    I am sorry... but it is the right and the priviledge of every American to question the government and her actions... and that includes the man who is responsible for those actions.... THE BUCK STOPS THERE!
    When the people are so complacent that they allow the takover of more than 20% of their rights by their leader.... SOMEONE must speak up.... The left is now stating ( SHarpton) that the Bill of RIghts are not guaranteed, and that the people have no Absolute rights under the constitution.... THAT IS BULL DUNG! 

     

    Now let us get back to the baseball topic...   but BILL.... after defending you and that right to say what you want.... CAN YOU PLEASE STOP THE SILLY "GET NOWHERE" threads?  I have to come here tot his website to see the news of my home town team.  The only way I get any "REAL" info - because journalists sauk is to read the things others are talking about having heard on the radio...  When you start these threads, I really do not get the chance to get the BASEBALL (REDSOX) talk I so dearly crave....

    HEY, anyone going to Fort Myers?  Maybe I could meet someone at a game... We now own a home down there and are moving down soon.  ANyone want to buy a home in the area? PM me I will help you.... I have contacts down there and it is still a great place to grab property at reasonable prices.... even if you want it as a seasonal property.

    Beckett$ was always part of the problem, not the solution !!!

    Sadly, people like you always mis the good times because you cannot see the forrest for the trees.

    Beckett was the RS since he joined us.  When he did well, we did well.  When he had an issue, we lost.

    2006-Bad season and we lost.

    2007-Great season and we won the WS

    2008-Solid season and we go to G7 of the ALCS.  We lose because he was pitching with an injury.

    2009-Excellent season and another PO appearance.

    2010-Bad season and we lst.

    2011-Excellent season and we had the best record in BB, until he gets hurt in TO and the team fell apart.

    2012-Bad season and we lost.

    Criticism of a presidents actions and blatant disrespect for the office are two very different things.

     

     




     

    I agree.

    I didn't vote for him and he's done a poor job, IMO.

    But, he's still the president. He's still my president.

    If we could pick up Stanton I'd rather keep Bradley anyway. Just from a team building perspective, Stanton would fill the part of the batting order we would be looking for Bogaerts to fill. I don't think we have a really good up and coming leadoff hitter outside Bradley though.

    I give both (and more) for Stanton and do not look back...
