Anybody have any thoughts on how Beckett will do the rest of this year? Can he get (and stay) healthy or will this back problem linger and affect him? Even before the blister, he seemed somewhat inconsistent this year. He was awesome his first couple starts, then faded a bit. His K rate is great, but his given up 4 or more ER in five of his 12 starts. Is he really an ace at this point or given too much hype because of last year's World Series?
"I'm telling ya, he jumped us. Gloves off, stick down, no warning. He challenged the Chiefs. Called us names. But Dave was there."
"Dave's a killer."
"Yeah, Dave's a killer."
"Dave's a mess."
