During today’s “Around The Horn”, Jay Mariotti says:
“Unlike the Yankees, the Red Sox spend their money wisely – look at Josh Beckett.” (emphasis his)
Okay, so Mariotti either ignored or is completely unaware of J.D. Drew, Julio Lugo, and Daisuke Matsuzaka’s poor performances relative to their big contracts. Fine. Whatever. The Red Sox won the World Series. Congratulations. I’m serious.
But the Red Sox traded for Josh Beckett. Everyone and their mother knows this. I literally think my mom knows this. The Red Sox traded Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez for Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. This was a pretty big story, Jay.
