Boston, MA – The Red Sox season officially came to a close yesterday, at least mathematically. At the center of the season-long shitstorm was everyone’s favorite punching bag, “the big Texan(?)”, Josh Beckett. I am being completely honest when I say I love the way he’s handled this season. He didn’t quit the game. He didn’t pretend to have injuries like J.D. Drew and go on the DL four times. He comes out and does the best that he can, which, unfortunately, is grooving 91mph tater tots down the pike. If anything, it’s a testament to his work ethic that he’s able to locate 10% of his pitches so each batter he faces doesn’t hit a home run.
