Man, today all of the national shows played excerpts from Beckett's post-game presser. Dan Patrick, Colin Cowturd, SVP, all of them. Beckett is now known as an assclown nationwide.
The "my off day is my off day" remark will now rank up there with Iverson's "we're talking about practice, man" in the pantheon of "Athlete's Who Just Don't Fucking Get It"
Wow. Is he actually trying to force a trade or something?
Or is his ego really that big?
Maybe he's hoping we'll trade him to Texas. I think we should trade him to somewhere like Minnesota. Mrs ESF favours Seattle.
I almost have nothing to say. Honestly, where do we go from here? The rotation just sucks, and a trade is not going to save them. As far as the quote, ESF and I probably will want him to give back his salary and just go away.
Fresh from Beckett's lips: "I spend my off days the way I want to spend 'em." and "my off day is my off day".
@Sox on the Beach Just caught the clip on SVP... ridiculous. Although I don't agree with Ryen Rusillo - I don't think he's an easy trade.
@Sox on the Beach How great would it have been if a reporter pointed out that he actually gets about four and a half MONTHS of off days every year.
@Sox on the Beach And Latrelle Sprewell, "I have a family to feed."
@English Sox Fan No, don't send him to Seattle - some of his home run balls are likely to be outs, there.
@English Sox Fan Pittsburgh has my vote. No hope of being competitive until we elect a President and Congress that cares about their voters (a very long time).
@EcksMoustache Ohhhh, I can't WAIT until ESF wakes up and sees this quote in the morning!
@EcksMoustache Wow. you almost have to admire his total commitment to assclownery
@EcksMoustache i feel like there should be some more expletives in there.
@EcksMoustache Dear god, what would he have to pitch like for him to feel bad???
g @EcksMoustache glad someone does.
@BB.13 if anything, i'm getting to bond with my Dad more. I wasn't a fully cognizant sports fan when the Sox were terrible when I was younger, so we're getting to relive some of Dad's past. So there's that.
@BB.13 Sure --
I can't see it anyway as I've poked out my eyes with a screwdriver....
@EcksMoustache someone keep those of us without nesn updated!
@Chris in LA Another great slogan for the season!
@Chris in LA i don't even have balls and my balls hurt
@hayes OK, we'll trade him on Tuesday. How's that? :D
@EcksMoustache yep. it's still the same problems as last season.
@hannah82 oh he dropped one. But only one. I feel like that's a triumph.
@EcksMoustache someone on twitter said it looked like he had aged 10 years since spring training.
@EcksMoustache oh bobby. he must be dreaming about japan every night
@hannah82 They lost
@hannah82 Alright, I'll hang around. Should be entertaining.
@hannah82 I would agree. He just sounded totally depressed. Someone asked him about the home losing streak, he said "It will end." Sounded more like he was telling himself that.
@lb--bb-s brother unfortunately, i got that. i want a recap of Beckett's interview.
