Suck on Opening Day, Then Get $68 Million

Ok, so that's not entirely fair — or fair at all, actually — but Josh Beckett has agreed to a four-year, $68 million extension with the Red Sox, joining Jon Lester, John Lackey and Clay Buchholz under team control through 2014.

Pedroia jokingly said that Beckett (and Lackey for that matter) would have signed for league minimum just so they wouldn’t have to face him on a regular basis.

C.C. Sabathia sucked on Opening Day against the Orioles in 2009, and blew a big lead on opening Day 2010. I guess the Yankees shouldn’t have signed him to that contract.

I am compelled to agree that Dustin Pedroia is a fantastic asset to the game of baseball, on the field and on the microphone.
My gosh I despise that funny, talented, height-challenged sonuvabeach.
