The ex factor

The Indians insist they’re not trying to rattle the competition, but Red Sox starter Josh Beckett will still hear an old flame singing tonight’s National Anthem prior to Game 5 when country music artist – and former Beckett girlfriend – Danielle Peck takes the microphone.

“It’s an incredible coincidence. Honestly,” Indians spokesman Bob DiBiasio told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “This isn’t another bug thing.

“She’s from Ohio. Her entire family are Indians fans.”

That’s Peck second from the left in a photo from her web site. Go Indians.


“We did not know anything about her connections to Beckett. The next day, we find out the rest of the story…How are we supposed to know who Josh Beckett dates?”

They don’t have scouts for that?
