This is a tweet I sent to Peter Gammons back in May regarding Josh Beckett (and the response I got):
Well, it turns out that being a grumpy asshole does translate into lack of effort, lack of focus and general disinterest in winning. And Josh Beckett is on the verge of being dumped because of said asshole-ism.
I was right and Peter Gammons and his Baseball Hall of Fame ring were just sipping the Kool-Aid that Ben Cherington and Larry Lucchino happened to be serving that day.
If your keeping score at home, its: Masshole 1, Gammons 0.
