Josh Beckett Continues to Play The Game The Right Way

Josh Beckett, the Red Sox starting pitcher who is “kind of about respecting the game“, is defending the game’s honor for us all again today.

In the 1st inning of today’s (4/16) game against the Angels, Orlando Cabrera hit a home run off Beckett. Beckett then plunked Vladimir Guerrero, who was then taken out of the game due to an injury caused by said plunking.

So, to summarize, here are the things opposing batters are not allowed to do when Josh Beckett is pitching/respecting the game/playing the game the right way:

  1. Bunt
  2. Hit home runs

Josh “Kind of About Respecting The Game” Beckett, ladies and gentlemen.

EDIT: I explained this whole Josh Beckett thing to my girlfriend this afternoon, because I was riled up and needed to rant to someone. And she astutely asked “Isn’t bunting, like, one of the oldest things in baseball? Like one of the most traditional?”. Yes, yes it is. So Josh Beckett, in an effort to be “kind of about respecting the game”, likes to throw at people who attempt to utilize the most super duper traditional old-timey offensive play in baseball.

    He didn’t hit him on purpose. If you had watched the game and seen his reaction you would know that.
