Josh Beckett MRI: Bad?

Postby BronXBombers51 » Wed Dec 07, 2005 7:00 am

The Red Sox probably won't attempt to sign Josh Beckett to a long-term deal before the start of next season.
"We kind of want to date for a while," said assistant GM Jed Hoyer. "We just acquired him. Let's get to know each other over the next couple months. If we decide we want to do a long-term deal, we'll do that." ESPN's Peter Gammons is going around saying that Beckett's MRI was so bad that the Red Sox aren't sure they'll get 20 starts from him next season. While we find that hard to believe -- he's an injury risk, but the Red Sox had access to the MRI before completing the deal -- waiting is clearly the smart play for Boston here. With two years remaining before free agency, it's not like he'd come cheap if he signed now. Dec. 7 - 4:24 am et

Probably not entirely true but it makes me smile.

That will have to move Beckett down a few spots on the cheat sheets.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

If that was true the Red Sox wouldn't have made the deal. Gammons is filling space.

Gammons is filling ESPN's air time with more Boston blabber ... no way. Say it ain't so.

funny when you think about it.
Yankees went out and bought the Yes network.
The Mets are now buying their's
and Boston gets ESPN and a national audience.. free of charge.

I'll be sure to mention this to every owner in my league as well as the move to AL and smaller park etc. Hopefully I can get him cheap.
