    Josh Beckett worried his career might be over

    I hope it iosn't true for his sake.Josh thinks his career might be over,here's a paragraph from the article and a link to read the rest:

    http://www.csnne.com/blog/red-sox-talk/beckett-worried-his-career-may-be-over

    "Any time something like that happens to your arm or you start losing feeling and stuff . . . you think about [retirement] for sure," Beckett, who is on the disabled list after four to five weeks of numbness in the fingers on his right hand, told the Times. "I don't really want to think like that right now. I want to think about figuring out a way to deal with this."

    I suspect he is not that "worried", but rather looking forward to it.

    Jim, your board-fatigue is showing thru.  I have never hated on Josh Beckett.  In fact in the sudsiest, greasiest days of "chicken-gate", I called poppycock on the whole deal.  I always liked Josh, and the only criticism I have ever levelled against him was that he should take his conditioning seriously, preferable my Spaceman Core Yoga Program, in order to extend his career and even out his performance inconsistency.  

    I am basing my conjecture about his mind state about possible retirement on the fact that he is clearly not the pitcher he once was.  And, without a commitment to fitness or a Clemens-esque career extending "technique", I think he sees the writing on the wall.  Combine this writing with the abuse he has taken at the hands of the Boston media/fan base for all these years, and i wouldn't blame him for not feeling excited to play baseball anymore.

    l ioved Beckett prior to him behaving like a baby in September 2011. That is how unfortunately  I am going to remember him.

    If he took baseball seriously and didt have this entitled attitude since his draft day, he would have been in prime shape and avoided most of these nagging injuries. I dont wish injury on any player either, but like PG said.....

    He could have been a hall of famer, his laziness and sense of entitlement prevented that from happening.

    Beckett was a useless underachieving slug who could barely bother to get in shape and was content with being a decent pitcher every other year. A world class grifter with no sense of team loyalty or personal responsibility, karma finally caught up with him. The fact that I was 1000% correct about this imbecile and his corrosive effect on the team should be lauded everyday. BTW Space, how did you enjoy yesterday's Red Sox victory? Maybe you should listen the first time when I post things. It will save you time..Wink

    I've been a fan of Beckett's since 2003, when he mowed the Yankees down on short rest.  For that, and for 2007, I will always be grateful.

    I remember after Beckett's first extension with the Sox, he was highly touted by the FO for his work ethic.  The FO cited that as one of the reasons for the extension, and they wanted the younger pitchers to emulate Beckett. 

    I'm not saying that Beckett didn't lose some of that edge and competitive desire along the way, which is a shame, but I still think that opinions of his laziness and his not caring are blown out of proportion.

    I wish him the best.

    I will never forget that picture I saw of him when he showed up for ST a few years ago. It showed him right after delivering a pitch, his fat belly hanging over his belt. Maybe you don't remember that picture; I do. Guys like Beckett and Doubront who show up in ST that out of shape get no respect from me. Why should I respect them? They don't show any semblance of professionalism when they do that. It would be like a doctor showing up at work in blue jean cutoffs. I don't wish that his injury ends his career, but I cannot honestly say beyond that that I wish him the best.
