    Re: Poll: Josh Beckett

    No reason why it should be "the last straw."  Off day golf is probably better than off day watching TV or whatever.  The missed start was the FO's idea and precautionary.  The golf might even have helped the lat. 

    I'm not a big Beckett fan, but I just don't see the logic of dumping a pretty good starter from a team badly in need of good starters.  Send Buchholz back to Pawtucket, maybe.  Manny repeatedly do stuff way worse than this.

    Beckett's continued legacy, well after his should have been "ran out of town!"

    Bobby v. on barking at the umps:


    Ump grumps

    Valentine made a trip to the mound in the first inning Monday to tell Felix Doubront to stop staring at umpire Tim Tschida over what the lefthander thought was a missed call.

    Barking at umpires has become routine for Red Sox starters, particularly Josh Beckett and Jon Lester.

    “It has to do with a pattern that I didn’t want to see develop that I saw developing,’’ said Valentine. “I’ve seen it in our whole staff, to be truthful with you, and I don’t think it’s healthy. I don’t think it’s beneficial to anyone.’’

    Valentine was asked if he would address the pitching staff about the issue.

    “Might,’’ he said. “I don’t know. I don’t know if I really have to.

    “I don’t want it to become a habit; it’s a bad habit. I’ve seen it a few times and last night I saw enough.’’

    Valentine is particularly worried about a pitcher like Doubront finding fault in the umpires instead of worrying about his own effort.

    “A young guy might start to use it as a crutch, that it’s OK, it was [the umpire’s] fault and I don’t think we can live that way,’’ the manager said.



    ***   I DON'T LIKE TO USE THE TERM CANCER, BUT CAN'T THINK OF A BETTER DESCRIPTOR WITH RESPECT TO BECKETT WITH RESPECT TO THE TEAM PROBLEMS!!!

    It should be the last straw. He has shown multiple times that he really doesn't care. He got the big contract. Get what you can.

    Very unrealistic - even I wouldn't just release him outright and eat his contract.  That would be insane......

    Well, as I said since early in 2010 and of course, got killed for it, "There isn't a team in baseball that would take on Beckett's contract for a mere Player To Be Named Later".......It was true then and it's true now.......I didn't wait for Theo to leave town to bash him.  He's responsible for 3 of the worst contract of my lifetime - Drew, Beckett's latest extension, and Carl "The Butcher" Crawford.
