But here’s where it gets really scary: Beckett doesn’t seem as concerned over these “lapses in judgment” as he is over the mere fact that said lapses found their way into print.
“I’m upset for myself with the lapses in judgment,” he said. “But there’s also some ill feelings toward some people.”
“There’s people,” he said.
...Look, if you want to gobble up the convenient sound bites about how mistakes were made, that there were lapses in judgment, and so on, have a ball. But a lot of what Beckett said yesterday was lame. Who are these people about whom he has “ill feelings?” Even if he’s referring to people no longer with the team, it makes one wonder about Beckett’s focus. If it’s people who are still with the team, it makes one wonder when the first clubhouse brawl will take place.
And for Beckett to insist that he never missed a workout, and that his weight gain just kind of happened, well, let’s just say it: It may say February on the calendar, but, for the Red Sox [team stats], it still feels like September.
