    Wow, didn't realize that Beckett was giving up the HR like 05 Milton.

    Josh Beckett:

    5.26 ERA , 75.1 IP , 72 H, 62 K, 17 HR

    Funny thing is, if Beckett can start keeping the ball in the park, he should be excellent again. He's given up less hits than innings and has a good K rate.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Believe me, my fantasy team realizes it. He's been getting hit hard when not striking hitters out.

    Check out his home road splits. Like two different people.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Wow, didn't realize that Beckett was giving up the HR like 05 Milton.

    Get this though:

    Beckett:
    Homers allowed at home: 1
    Homers allowed on the road: 16

    Schilling:
    Homers allowed at home: 0
    Homers allowed on the raod: 13

    WTF?!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I know this doesn't account for all of it, but the weather has been nasty for almost every game they've played in Boston this Spring.

    I can only think that it has something to do with the deep right CF in fenway.

    Too many trips to Toronto, NY, Cleveland, and Texas? It's weird, isn't it? Check Keith Foulke's h/r splits, just for the heck of it: H: 8.47 ERA, 6 HR, R: 2.40 ERA, 0 HR. Bizzarro staff.
