    Josh Beckett injury update: Bad sprain, surgery not required

    A person familiar with the condition of Red Sox righthander Josh Beckett said his ankle sprain was "bad," but that surgery was not anticipated.

    He will miss at least one start. Beckett's status beyond that is uncertain as he could return to the mound within a week or two.

    Beckett will treat the sprain by reducing the inflammation, stabilizing the ankle with a brace and strengthening the joint through rehabilitation. There are no plans for a cortisone shot at this time.

    Beckett is expected to rejoin the team in Toronto.

    More on this after the game.

    UPDATE, 7:38 p.m.: Here's a statement from Red Sox medical director Tom Gill:

    “Josh was evaluated today at the Massachusetts General Hospital by the Red Sox medical staff, including team foot and ankle specialist, Dr. George Theodore. Josh experienced pain in his ankle while pitching last night. His examination was consistent with an ankle sprain. An MRI was performed that confirmed no other injury to his ankle tendons, or his Achilles tendon. We will re-evaluate his symptoms and availability later this week."

    How the heck does a guy get a "bad" sprain pushing off on a pitch?? In my experience you have to land on someone else foot, catch your spikes, or hit the bag wrong to get a bad sprain? Man, when was the last time a pitcher sprained his push off ankle throwing a pitch?! What's next, Pedey knocking himself out with his own bat after overswinging on a pitch?

    I totally agree.  I just don't get how he did it.  Oh well, he did. 

    I guess this is good news compared to what we've been hearing throughout the day.  I was expecting to hear some sort of major ligament damage.  It sounds like he may miss a few starts.

    yeah, I mean, lately, when I hear the words "(insert Res Sox player's name) will see a specialist" ... I am thinking - season over.  Hey, best case, he gets some rest and is fresh for the post.  And, worst, well, hell, maybe we're looking at Bloody Sock 2.0.  I could live with that, and Josh would have the whole off-season to drink it off in a deer hunting stand somewhere in the texas backcountry.

    This is from WEEI.com:

    http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/this-just-in/21136916/beckett-return-boston-unsure-injury

    Beckett said that he fell in the bullpen trying to take a shirt off, although he was unsure if that had anything to do with the injury considering it didn't bother him until just before exiting from the game.

    "I busted my [butt], fell. I was just trying to change shirts and they have concrete or something down there," he said. "I fell. I don't know, but I don't think it had anything to do with it. I think I would have felt it earlier than that."

    What the heck is wrong with these guys??!?  They need to practice changing their shirts in the off-season!  Tito is waaaay too lax in terms of making them change their shirts.  He has babied Beckett along, not wanting to make his star veteran change his shirt, and look what happens when he has to change his shirt?  BAM!  Right on his butt.  Theo ultimately gets the blame, IMO, for not making sure this guy knew how to change his shirt before inking him to a multi year 18+ mil per deal.  Sickening!  In the old days, ballplayers could change their shirts, pop a greenie,AND smoke a cigarette, all while walking from the dugout to the lockerroom to take a pizz.

    The thing that concerns me about this is that I've had bad sprains before and limped around on them for a couple of weeks or more.  Of course, I didn't have the entire Red Sox medical staff at my disposal either!  LOL

     I see you know even less about sprains than you do about baseball; some sprains, if severe enough, can be worse than broken bones.

    Best plan is to hold Beckett out until playoffs. The extra days of rest were not enough, Beckett should only pitch every 10 dyas. Then, if not feeling well, do the surgery and make sure he gets his full contract payments.

    It's just that since you're the queen of partisan fueled psychobabble, there's just so much material to choose from; and yes, I was banned (Hence, I had an archive via my old moniker that I knew was never read, resulting in all those posts; who said you couldn't keep score? It wasn't perfect, though), and I'm sure BDC had their reasons (with a little help from, I wonder, possibly?), as opposed to you, who due to your narcisstic pathological state, are actually annoyed when one of your posts were removed (and yet you subsequently categorically deny you had posts removed to JE).


    And, (as you would say) FTR, one of your bizarre Yankeedom oriented theories awhile back about why I accused Babe being a RS fan was patently wrong; I did it because I was tired of him constantly accusing me of being a "red flops" fan, and decided to do the same to him.

    FWIW, the Lowrie AB was terrible umping, but it was a 5-2 game with 2 outs in the 9th vs MO, so it's not likely the right calls would have mattered; regardless; I wish they did use all the (very accurate, but not perfect) technology available,  (Perhaps give MGRs two replay flags per game, including ball/strike calls, and if they're right, they can get another flag? The games are long enough already, especially with the commercial breaks, so what's another 10 minutes if it gets the calls right?), because if the Yankees win this yr, I'm sure you'll have your built in excuse.

    Also, I know I don't have my Star of David avatar yet, but I'm working on it.


    As far as my skirt and pom poms goes, I need to get some I guess, however I'm not leaving; and who did you accuse of not being mature?

    Partisan fueled psychobabble? Oh, yeah, you're definitely Steve. LOL

    Btw, what would be a good description of a Yankee fan who hangs out on a rival team's board (not even posting on a Yankee site ever), just going after posters that you feel are too bias towards their own team? That should be a good one.

    I had not idea you were banned. But, IMO, you have to know yourself what happened -- even though you're pretending not to. Old habits die hard.

    As for my "narcisstic pathological state" (lol) when my posts are removed, my Mariano thread, in it's entirety, has apparently been removed. That's the second thread of mine that had not-so-flattering posts of Yankee fans to be pulled. When I think how long a Yankee fan was able to keep a thread up about a Sox poster being a troll (it's probably in the archives now), I just shake my head. It's never going to make sense to me. I've never removed a post or thread from this board in the entire time I've been here. If you haven't already noticed, I respond to the abusive and offensive posts about me.

    And your Star of David avatar isn't ready yet for posting on a Sox board? What does that mean? I realize alot of your posts tend to sound like you're in some kind of religious fight, but this is a baseball board. I'm guessing you'll use any excuse not to identify yourself as a Yankee fan.

    No I don't believe that. I also don't believe your screenname magically reappeared. It's amazing what Yankee fans and their pals here can do. Maybe someone can make my "Mariano against the Sox" thread reappear. Although, I doubt it works both ways.

    And I've used "LMAO" in probably four posts since I've been here. If you can find more, you should do that.

    LMAO, LOL, it's all the same to me.  As far as my moniker is concerned, All I know is that for about a month no one could see my posts; as pointed out by J-Bay; I didn't know why either, since I was never banned before and as a result didn't know what to expect. Then J-Bay said yesterday he could suddenly see my posts. I don't understand that either; all I can come up with is it's some sort of glich that was somehow resolved. If you don't believe that, (and since you have a conspiracy theory for everything that doesn't conform to your agenda, as far as I'm concerned), I'll get over it.

    You know what would be great? If Sox fans on this board who supposedly have so much say here cared as much about Sox fans posting on their own board as they do about Yankee fans coming here to direct traffic. JMO
