Mazz: 'Why are the Sox even pitching Beckett?'
Wed, 8 Aug 2012|
Tony Massarotti is fed up with the poor pitching of Josh Beckett, and at this point doesn't understand why the Sox even bother to put him on the mound.
It all Beckett needs to do now that camp spot this spells his supporters of fried chicken and. That was from earlier in the season. But it still works. Josh Beckett. Roundly booed off the mound today at Fenway Park again you heard it again. He deserved this went through. Five innings. Five plus. Eight hits. -- eight earned runs. Two strikeouts to walks three home runs hit by pitch. Like again I'd I I I listened to the guys that cover this team every day I am convinced. That package did everything he possibly could be ready for the start -- possessions to he has his TO ready for the season now he's 497. Just under five which means it's five. Lester is over five that. All of them again and Mike in this game. If you -- boil it down to just this game. First inning he gives up three runs. They get to in the bottom half and they tie it three to three he -- to give -- three more. They go ahead six to three they come back they get to more than make it six the par and just what stoppers do math it's not really in that impact nothing set yet. The game really is a microcosm of -- that's happened this season everytime they come back and get pulled temple would even. He goes out there and suck them back again and and that's exactly them in this game that absolutely positively kill them. Here was the biggest round of commentary that you heard. We look leading up to the trade deadline when it was asked you how do you trade Josh Beckett and what they also like -- the Red Sox media. How do you replace them. We -- -- putrid Youkilis because you know Brooks you don't trade Beckett but how do you replace some. Boy. How do you replace eight earned in five innings. I think you can do that you get tattooed in this game to him you some of these balls weren't we're not it's -- I think that's out -- -- That you could find a starting give you. Eight earned runs over five innings held Derek Lowe can do about it I think -- the number guys in the Boston park league that was -- -- call up to the red sock it to me that's not hard to replace. I don't think but what to get him out there every day -- so I I don't know like if I were there every day I would see the value in eight earned over five. And I didn't hear the excuses shoulders much taller than we've been saying that. Years. I don't Arnie years. Every time there's a bad outing it's nice guy that's got some physically but no -- cramped. There's something wrong mentally physically there's something wrong with the player and not noticed it. Anybody here blow him the hell out of here. Hacked at the bags for Lackey and Beckett so on the Texas tell them they can drink beer till their hearts content climbed into the back -- the pick up together. -- yourself a deer urine. Bring a 24 pack bring a thirty pack. Bring a pony -- Gordon in the woods and shoot your -- And we'll see you next year hopefully we'll see you never again but I'll go nuts sixty day DL Josh your back that hurts don't worry we'll cover for him. All go home -- the ball to Franklin Morales and just try and get some semblance of routine back to some I would go to thirty packed for sure. An announcement over the -- -- 36 now humans. There's a 36 now you get 36 now Alou at the new thing -- to the guard Dave but he got. Like better. Guys are good. Lowe doesn't go on the are glad. I can't -- all -- up which I suspect it is. You know what eighteen days off they are just go out. So I'm at a golf course and maybe just -- you -- that you want so much. -- -- I I just told you this animal put on the sixty day DL but the Red Sox -- already told us his shoulders much sorted out and we -- -- -- -- a year. Don't even need to make an excuse KI it's that it's not just his fault he's as dedicated as he's ever been I've hired rob sort. Smart fans what they. He's got a shoulder sent a ball out and hurt us so -- your question in all seriousness here. That they're going with six guys right now anyway -- -- -- they inserted morale is in the in the other day now Beckett to back so they have six guys in the rotation. Why why why are they pitching him well why is he getting the ball.
