Are you going to tell this guy he can’t pitch every 5 days?

I wouldn’t want to draw the short straw between Tito and Farrell and have to talk to Josh “intense is my middle name no I lied its Patrick” Beckett. First off you don’t tell Josh Beckett anything. You attempt to explain the situation and hope he leaves your office calmly as possible and not with one of your limbs between his teeth. This guy lives to pitch and as much of a team player as he is and has shown, he doesn’t want anyone else stepping in and messing with his vibe.

The illustrious 6-man rotation, only to be outdone by the ever so popular closer by committee, that as Sox fans, we laugh at every time another team speaks of the experiment. Why doesn’t baseball have the 6 man rotation? Each starter could throw more with one more day of rest. If you got em, smoke em, right? Why don't teams embrace it? Why didn't Marty just go back to 1955 and bang his mom and hope for the best? Who knows. Supposedly the 6-man would only be til the All-Star break, which is a little less than a month away. All I know is that if Tity is sitting on the bench with a black eye and his arm in a sling on the day Becks was scheduled to pitch I'm not going to buy the "fall down the stairs" routine.

I heard that what we have long thought of as the Beckett baseball card magazine isn't a baseball card magazine at ALL, but rather a catalog of all the player's Josh Beckett has SCALPED, and what he's willing to sell them for to the US government.
