Josh Beckett, You're F'ing Out!
With the Red Sox in fourth place in the AL East cellar** and six and a half games out of first place, Boston fans are starting to play the blame game because one of their major sports teams might not win their respective league championship. Bastan (as the home crowd pronounces it) fans most likely blame the slump on Big Papi's ball-bat avoidance technique, and lackluster pitching.
DBSF believes the later deserves further scrutiny. Examine the two pictures above. What do you notice? Yeah, that's right--over one off-season superstar pitcher Josh Beckett has transformed himself into Kenny "F'ing" Powers. Beckett has one win in seven starts and a 7.46 ERA that would make Danys Baez ashamed. This doesn't necessarily spell the end for Beckett but, DBSF recommends that unlike his doppelganger Kenny Powers, Beckett focus on more than just real sports and try to be the best at exercising.
**(DBSF recognizes that there are 5 teams in the AL East and that the term 'cellar' is typically reserved for the last place team but considering the Baltimore Oriole's perennial inefficacy the cellar in the AL East is fourth place. The Orioles are in a lower circle of hell that is well below the cement floors and sewer pipes of most conventional residential property).
