Josh Beckett?...Bounce back?...or bust?

any smart manager wouldn't take this guy too early.. if you think he can bounce back, then try to snag him a little later, but if you take him too early you might be paying a heavy price for that blister.. those things are a bitch for a couple years before they finally go away ...

Didn't touch him last year and won't this year, unless he drops ridiculously low, which he won't.

He will do neither. He will have some great outings when the blisters are gone and he'll be on the DL. Get him and play him when he's healthy.
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

Just curious here. Last year in my 5x5 12 team drafts Beckett was gone in the 6th-7th round. What is the earliest that you'd pick him in that type of league?

Personally, I don't think I'd take him before the 9th.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?

It's really hard to tell until you get started on the draft. I have said before that I wouldn't take a player before this or that round but things change on the fly. :-?

I got burned by him last year, too - was my 1st SP taken (3rd round).

I heard all that garbage about pickle juice and whatnot, and just kept thinking about growing up on my parents' horse farm. Half your life is spent shovelling you-know-what from the stalls. All the Marlins have to do is send panty-waist Beckett to Dad's farm for two weeks before the season and Boom!, problem solved. Of course, that would entail some actual physical labor on Josh's part, not just keeping a hand in a packle jar while playing Nintendo.
