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?
