[QUOTE]Sonics, did you watch him pitch in those last months??? I did and what I saw was a fat guy struggling to get out of the 5th....he pitched great against the Yanks but to suggest that he is an ace, and cant be replaced is laughable...he is an ace at times, but not usually anymore...he is like every thirty-something pitcher in the league who has seen better days.... he will be traded for prospects or a useful everyday player but he is not worth a whole lot to any team because of his salary, weight, attitude, and insubordination that led to our epic fail in 2011...for this alone he should be canned and he will be...you keep on reciting stats like some crazed Hare Krishna nut....I've heard this before from Francona (2 time champion) lovers who REFUSED to see reality right in front of their eyes.... Ben doesnt want this chump on our team...just like he didnt want Francona, Tek, Wake, JD, and Lackey.....Beckett is history get use to it

To which games are you referring? In the 15 games during the last 3 months (your parameter)....he pitched 95 innings. That an average of 6 and a third innings per start without adjusting for the game he was injured. I can't easily find the average but that's pretty close to it. And in the 5 "money" games vs Tex, NYY and TB he averaged 6.6 IP and we won all 5.
You write "you keep on reciting stats like some crazed Hare Krishna nut"...but that absurd, I'm just looking at the most basic, obvious stats that you haven't refuted. But all you're doing is saying nyah, nyah, you're wrong, you don't watch the games.
14 starts giving up 0 or 1 earned runs, two bad starts at the end while injured with no bullpen support.....
