he is fine I heard it on the Sox game tonight. They check his fingers after every start just to make sure and keep up the treatments on his hands. NO BLISTERS!! Woooohooo. Francona said that this situation got blown way out of proportion just because the cameras saw the trainer looking at his hands. Everything is coool.

BALTIMORE - Josh Beckett growled yesterday at the first reporter inquiring about a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

“I don’t have (an expletive) blister,” Beckett said. “Look at my (expletive) finger.”

Beckett displayed his right hand, which revealed no redness, swelling or roughness on the finger in question. It looked pretty normal upon the quick check, which is good news given the pitcher’s history of blister problems that have landed him on the disabled list.


“I’m pissed. I really am. This is (expletive) stupid,” said Beckett, who was upset about all the speculation on TV, as well as a newspaper report calling the back into question. “My dad calls me. He thinks I’m lying to him. That’s it. I’m done talking to you guys for the year.”

Beckett then stormed away as a group of reporters headed toward his locker. About 15 minutes later, he emerged from the trainer’s room with a large wrap around his lower back.
