"I donít want to be part of a reality show. If I wanted to be part of a reality show I would move to LA. Thatís not what Iím here for. Iím here to win baseball games and weíre not doing a good job of that. Am I part of the solution or am I part of the problem? I want to part of the solution, not part of the problem..."

"It sucks because it seems nobody else wants you here except for your teammates. What are supposed to do? What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to go home and pout and take that home with me. That ainít happening. Thatís not me. Like I said, if I wanted to be part a reality show I would go to LA. Iím not into that." -- Josh Beckett to Rob Bradford

"They took the beer out of the clubhouse, but nothing changed. They switched the man in the manager's office, but he's no better. The rot in the Boston Red Sox organization runs too deep for cosmetic upgrades, and nobody better personifies it than Josh Beckett, the clueless, defiant egomaniac who's poisoning another Red Sox season." -- Jeff Passan, Yahoo Sports

"We get 18 off days a year. I think we deserve a little time to ourselves... I spend my off days the way I want to spend them... My off day is my off day." -- Josh Beckett, off base again

"It doesn't look good." -- Bobby V on Michael Kay show today... no wonder he was ill prepared for his press conference with the Boston media
