I don’t care that Beckett went golfing on a day off after he was announced as a scratch. I am surprised that at this point in his career playing for Boston that he doesn’t know better than to go golfing on a day off after he was announced as a scratch. A subtle, important difference, and until he learns it he will always be playing from the weeds. Unless he goes out and pitches a scoreless game and then everyone will forgive him for five days anyway.
Beckett is pitching against the Tribe at Fenway, who send their old friend Derek Lowe to the bump. Remember to replace your divots and comment away.
