Felger & Mazz: Josh Beckett Speaks About Drinking In The Clubhouse

With pitchers and catchers reporting in just 12 days, Felger and Massarotti got into the Boston Red Sox and Sox pitcher Josh Beckett.

Josh Beckett appeared on the MLB Network’s Intentional Talk with Kevin Millar and Chris Rose and drinking in the clubhouse was one of the topics.

“The biggest key was… we stunk on the field,” said Beckett. “That was the bottom line. If we would have pitched better, none of that stuff would have been an issue. It shouldn’t be an issue anyways, because what goes on in the clubhouse should stay in the clubhouse. I don’t care who says that or whatever. I’m not saying we don’t make mistakes in the clubhouse… What goes on in the clubhouse, it’s supposed to stay in the clubhouse.”

Is what goes on in the clubhouse different from what happens on the field? Why can’t Beckett take responsibility?

How will new manager Bobby Valentine be able to change the culture in the Sox clubhouse?

    Beckett’s arrogance and sense of entitlement over shadows everything and anything he says. Unfortunately for Beckett, the things he is saying underlines
    and emphasizes the need for Beckett to be traded.

  2. He doesnt realize other teams wont be interested in taking on a problem that tears down a club house.

    Beckett should be traded now! With his attitude, he is a virus and like all viruses, will spread and infect everyone around him.

    What responsiblility? In case your forgetting it wasn’t just him who shat the bed in September. And guess what…HE’S RIGHT! What happens in the clubhouse should STAY in the clubhouse. It just came out that Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd did cocain in the club house and he was a pretty good pitcher, so I don’t really see beer or chicken as an issue. So how about we cut the head hunting act and let them go out and prove that they can do better
