Sitting behind plate watching Daisuke 89-94 FB, superb slurve, hard cutter made me think he'd be a great NL September pickup. 2007 redux— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) August 28, 2012
LA Times columnist T.J. Simers failing to get a rise out of Josh Beckett: "But what about that pitch that was walloped for a home run? It ever come down? 'I figured it would eventually,' says Beckett, who then throws an obscenity into the microphones while describing the pitch hit for a bomb. 'That's your choice of words?' I ask. 'Sure,' he says defiantly, while wiping out any chance the folks with microphones and TV cameras will have of playing his sound bite. I ask how he emotionally dealt with his Dodgers career beginning in such an unsettling way. 'I didn't draw it up that way,' he says. 'I had it going differently in my head.' How did you have it going? 'A weak ground ball to first base would have been nice,' he says, revealing almost a hint of personality."
"The Red Sox must have felt like a homeowner walking down to the sidewalk with a cardboard box full of 'According to Jim' DVDs and a FREE sign—only to have someone run up and offer $200,000 for the set." -- Jason Gay, Wall Street Journal
