First Time

This is my first ever post on my brand new blog. 3 years ago I did'nt even know what a blog was, and now I've got one. Thanks go out to Tex{You know who you are!} for kinda giving me the shove I needed!

Since I'm new at this, I'll start my first post with a question.

Is it just me, or are the Boston media WAY off base with their criticism of Josh Beckett and his performance last year? First year in the A.L., 16 wins, 200+ innings, and healthy for the first time for a whole year?

In Beckett, the Red Sox have a 26 year old flamethrower locked up for the next 3 years. He's a kid who will learn that in order to reach his peak, he'll have to learn how to pitch, not just throw.

Beckett, Pap, Daisuke, Schill, and Wake for 2007.

Sounds good to me.

WOOOOOT! Ted made it over to the 21st Century!!

I'd say Boston don't know beans bout Beckett!! 1st: he's a Texan..nuff said :)
2nd: Beckett has determination and persistance and guts

3rd: The Boston media likes drama!

Great inaugural post Ted D.

I love The Usual suspects too.

"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone."

My 15 minutes of fame was meeting Steven Baldwin in an elevator and being invited up to his hotel room later that night (I was at a work function and my boss wouldn't let me out of the business event). Truth be told I woulda been to scared to go anyway.

The best line from usual suspects is "I'll flip ya, I'll flip ya for real"

congrats on the blog start and i agree about becks. If he would listen to Tek it would make his life easier.

Obey the Tek. Always.

Canadon - agreed, that was a riot. I read it was a big joke during the filming - not being able to understand Benicio del Toro. They decided just to run with it and let it flow into the script. That was too funny.
