I wish I were posting about the baseball card price guide magazine, but nay. I want to cut Josh Beckett so bad, he is killing me week after week. Being from Boston, I get to see this guy pitch every game. I'm a rare unbiased Sox fan and he has never wowed me but right now he's doing nothing but make me want to rip that freaking hemp necklace off his neck and shove it up his 455. I thought I was getting good value for him in the 8th round but clearly I was mistaken.

Speaking of the Beckett magazine... did anyone else have the one with Jeff Bagwell on the cover where you could see the perfect outline of his dip tin in his back pocket? That was awesome.

Also from Boston, also unbiased Sox fan (I loathe this current team, it's an insult to all the real fans that they'd put that product on the field), also hating on beckett, also just obtained him in a trade (straight up for aardsma so its ok) so I feel your pain man. Nice 3 inning outing tonight...the 3 Ks is the only bright spot. FML.

Of course I had to draft him just days prior to his giant contract signing. If I had known he'd be set coming into this year I would have never touched him. All motivation has been lost and clearly so has all control and pitching ability.

i went mostly offense in my auction and decided to spend a little on at least 2 pitchers. ended up paying $18 for beckett and i feel like an idiot. my $24 on verlander also doesn't seem to be going well. only wainwright was worth his value at $21. but goddamn do i hate beckett and verlander right now.

I was able to find that Beckett magazine cover I was talking about via the power of google image search... the dip just makes me laugh. It's pre-roids too (or maybe early roid stages), look how much smaller he is vs his roid prime.
