Beckett is upset people would think he had a blister...

Postby TheYanks04 » Wed May 17, 2006 4:42 pm

wow...there is a shocker and he is obviously someone completely divorced from reality.


Rotoworld:
Josh Beckett became upset Tuesday because members of the Boston media did not believe him that he doesn't have a blister on his finger.
"I don’t have (an expletive) blister," Beckett said. "Look at my (expletive) finger. I’m pissed. I really am. This is (expletive) stupid. My dad calls me. He thinks I’m lying to him. That’s it. I’m done talking to you guys for the year."

Ha, that is pretty funny. Though you have to understand in his foot steps he has had to deal with it so much that I'm sure he is really tired of it. It's not that people would assume it's a blister, it's that people still do after he said it wasn't.

It's always fun to see a redneck athlete try to behave in a city.

"I'm not talking to you guys for the year." that's something a toddler would say.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

Wow, a Yankees' fan talking crap about a Red Sox' player. Never seen this one before. At least he didn't threaten the reporters like Randy Johnson.

You combine the Boston Media and the Red Sox management reputation for outright lieing about injuries (esp under Duquette) and it would have been shocking for themedia up there to have NOT questioned him about it further.

hahah thats funny. If I was a pro athlete I'd say stupid stuff to the media all the time just to annoy them.

I'd be like "yea I have a blister look at it. Its freaking huge. It's probably gonna end my career. In fact I quit. I won't be pitching anymore for the redsox." Then i'd not talk to them until my next start passed.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

And you see Beckett is from the Marlins where there isn't near the media up in the north east. He isn't used to it and it's obviously frustrating him w/ the "blister" episode.

Not really sure what the point of this post is. Let's not take it out of context-it's not as if his reaction was unprompted.

The kid pitches a gem. He comes out of the game for the 8th b/c he tweaked his back earlier (snagged a spike). A camera happens to catch a shot of him showing his hand to Nipper and a trainer. His finger, for the record, was fine.

All of a sudden its all "BECKETT HAS BLISTERS AGAIN!" It headlines DirtDogs, with all the back quotes about how they can't seem to fix the problem (from past years, mind you), it's on the Globe, NESN pulls up the graphic of his DL stints due to blisters, Remdawg announces his suspicion. Hell, there's even some clown over on injury/player updates who instantly posts a thread "Beckett and Blisters! Beware!!"

Then he comes out and rather than discussing the incredible game he threw (after struggling in recent outings), he's bombarded by speculation that he's back to his old problems. He came to Boston knowing that everyone doubted his ability to stay off the DL because of his finger.

He's an emotional guy, and you can bet that so far, he's been quite proud to be able to prove them wrong and show that he can bring his stuff to the team without concern. It's a lot of pressure, and it sucks that the media won't let him rise above his reputation-even when he IS ok. Screw it. I'd blow up too.
