Anyone know wtf is wrong with this guy? Rotoworld says his command is off but he's not laboring or injured.

Any Boston fans that get to see him pitch regularly see anything in terms of mechanics to be concerned about, or heard of a minor injury or something?

I'm a little worried, he's single-handedly cancelling out Roy Halladay on my team.

He's really a very frustrating player to own. I've owned him in a keeper league the past 3 years and it drives me nuts. I totally expect him to come out of his funk, as he did a similar thing last year, but it's just annoying because it feels like he doesn't even care. I would much rather have a more consistent pitcher who ended up with similar stats than the up & down type of guy he is. Plus, now he's not gonna have the chance to get cheap wins with such a mediocre offense supporting him.


"7.22 – Josh Beckett’s ERA. He had one stellar outing against Tampa Bay but followed it up with a combined 15 runs in his next two starts while only fanning seven. Ironically he did the exact same thing in his 4th and 5th starts last season. I’m not sure I’d call him overrated, but rather erratic. In 11 games last season he was filthy, allowing only one run or less. Unfortunately he also had seven games where he allowed five or more runs, including two eight run games and two seven run games. Don’t lose hope, just be prepared for him to screw up your team ERA every once in a while."
