    When a team pays a player 15 mil+ a year, the fans and the FO have a right to expect very big performance from these guys.  In the real world...if you don't perform up to expectations...you are FIRED.

    1. I don't have HW. 2. I'd rather watch the Red Sox :p

    And to the comment about how DLowe is a #5 at best... You do realize not counting today he is 4-1 with a 2.39 ERA.

    Beckett did not poison Buchholz.  Buch is just a headcase who will never live up to his physical talent unless he develops some mental toughness.  Say what you want about Beckett, but he isn't lacking in that department.

    [QUOTE]As it is comprised now, this team's play is truly a total embarrassment. I haven't seen play this bad in almost 40 years. The outfield play is atrocious.   Half the lineup should be hitting off a tee. Don't remember the last time I saw the entire starting rotation sitting in the toilet.  The manager, who may be gone soon, is a moron.  I keep thinking 'oh well, it gonna get better'. But, each night it seems to get worse.

    Agreed.  I tune in thinking the real red sox will show up tonight but I'm continually disappointed.  I think pap saw the writing on the wall so he got out of boston as fast as he could.

    That comment goes to what two people? Beckett and Lackey? Beckett pitched fantastic last year, I don't care what anybody says. Lackey... I wish he would get fired.

    Zack - 4 out of 5 of Beckett 's last starts were really poor including his last 2 which were terrible outings - the last one especially when he gave up 2 BOMBS and 4 BB's in essentially a must win fighting for your life game......So please do not say he pitched "fantastic" last year.  Maybe for awhile.  But as I said, the TEXAS TOUGH GUY can not make it past Aug 1st anymore........He's a LOAD!!!!!!!

    Beckett great start tonight after nice round of golf.  2 innings 7 hit 7 runs.  Nice job.  Way to be a leader when the Sox need you Josh.

    Let's see... Lackey... Crawford (But Crawford was probably the person trying the hardest out of everyone). Youk's stats were down. Dice K.... Jenks... Yep that's all I can think of.

    Beckett had a 2.89 ERA last season... Beckett also had an injury he wasn't fully recovered from when he was pitching in september.

    Crawford?  I can maybe deal with the fact that he's a butcher in the field but there is no amount of lack of talent to refuse to hit your cut off man.  And that's Crawford.  Based on just that fact alone I can say he wasn't trying and wasn't being a team player......

I'm named after Ted Williams and my daughter is named after Carl Y. Don' t tell me what kind of Red Sox fan I am. I know crap when I see it. You are too young to see the lack of effort. You actually are defending Beckett. You are the only one on this board doing that. Does't that tell you something? Now do your homework.

    Well, I've seen his posts lately and I haven't liked them. He sounds more like a mixture of Softlaw and Babe then a red sox fan.

    zack

    Most of us have followed the sox for many years, we are not bandwagon fans from 04'

    We have seen good and bad teams and yes your'e right when you say we should support our team.

    The lack of effort, bad pitching and bad fielding is unacceptable.  These guys make big bucks so they should leave everything out on the field but I don't see that happening.

    I was at camden yards last year for the sox last games.  You could see the lack of hustle and feel the malaise coming from the team. 

    Yes you should cheer the sox but you should never praise the lack of effort of some of these players, beckett is certainly one of them.

    Beckett is fine. He was just a little " under par " tonight.

    Posted by zack5042[/QUOTE]

    Zack - the 2.89 is an AVERAGE.  Averages do not illustrate consistency.  He was soo terrible in September. 

    You want a guy who will consistently give you a hit a game or hold the other team to 3 runs or less start after start.  You will win much more games than having guys who get 2 hits one night, and zero the next....Or hold the team to 1 run one start and give up 5 or more the next......So you can not look at averages....Look at Beckett's stats since 2008 from Aug 1 on each year.......He falls apart.  That is not what we need from a guy making his kind of money......

    If there is a silver lining in all of this...the Sox get to take a good look at the farm system while looking for a way out of these doldrums.
