Heh. I love it when you wax poetic about a player. You're much more eloquent than any press clippings or whatnot.

Personally, I was mostly happy about the trade, as Beckett seemed to fill the biggest need the Sox had the end of 2005; a young, experienced, potential ace. I kind of reserved full judgment until I actually got to watch him a few times. Then I went and fell totally in love with his curveball the first time I saw it. I was doomed right there.

I look forward to seeing Josh's halves of innings like a special treat all week.

Oh my god, I'm like that too. I walk around singing, "Beckett Day! Beckett Day!" in my head when it's his turn. And the nights when Eck is in the NESN studio too? It makes the experience 100 times better. Thursday was just an awesome day.

I'm convinced NESN's radar gun was simply down by 3 mph. The reason I say this is because the hitters seem to flail just as stupidly as ever at his fastballs. Also, his changeup was consistently around 87 all night, when of course his changeup is (almost humorously) usually at around 90 or 91. I'm not 100% sure that this was the case, of course. At least I hope this was the case.


mouse, the eck-beckett combo is, like the existence of big papi, proof that there is a god and he loves us and wants us to be happy. :)

max, i think the hitters would've flailed at it anyway because of the movement on it.

There is only one sentence in that entire post I disagree with. It is, of course: "I'm not very attractive."

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.
