Is Josh Beckett really Kenny Powers?

"Why is Boston ultimately doomed? Who knows? … But John Lackey has more friends in that clubhouse than Jacoby Ellsbury does. I don’t care which of the sciences you believe in: That’s a bad sign."

"Ha ha, look at those losers faithfully completing their workouts. Suckers."

Wow. What a disaster. This team is a complete mess. Total abdication by everyone. And I’m so disappointed in Lester - thought he was better than that. Beckett and Lackey are hardly the ones to hitch your wagon to. Drinking beer and eating fried chicken during games while the team is falling apart kind of diminishes this. And this. Way to play hard for your second dad, Jon. Ugh.

"Look, the injuries at the back end of the Boston rotation have hurt; the Red Sox have missed Clay Buchholz, and they’ve missed Daisuke Matsuzaka. But the September collapse falls on the shoulders, to a high degree, on the late-season failures of Jon Lester and Beckett. They are supposed to be the aces of this team, in stature and in salary, and they have been lousy this month.

Lester and Beckett this month, combined:
Starts: 9
Red Sox record in their starts: 2-7
Outings in which Beckett/Lester pitched into the seventh inning: 3
ERA: 5.73

If the Red Sox complete their collapse in the next 72 hours and its history is written, Lester and Beckett will have to be placed near the top of the pyramid of blame.”
