Kenny Lofton Isn't Happy With Josh Beckett (Update: Now With Umpire Mic Goodness!)

Thursday, October 18, 2007

As a pitcher I don't think you ever lose you cool like this, but Josh Beckett wasn't happy with Kenny Lofton putting down his bat on three and zero........annnnnd let's start the feud!

Kenny did wait about 40 minutes to get in the box the other night versus Dice K and proceeded to hit a two run homer so this could be payback. Still you don't ever see pitchers ever talk trash directly to a player on a pop-up.

Let's go to the umpire's audio!

Dude! Kenny.....maaaaaaan. Just chill out bro. And Josh brah....what are you doooooing? We're all bros here.

Ummm....bullpen. Take a few laps.

In Beckett's first spring training with the Sox in 06, he and Ryan Howard got into it in a game because Howard stood to admire a ball that ended up being a warning track out, so it's not the first time Beckett's said something to a hitter

Baseball has the worst fights. I can't wait for a major brawl to happen in a playoff or world series. Then they might finally do something about the idiocy that is bullpen pitchers running in like the cavalry for no reason. The dumbest thing about my favorite sport.

That wasn't his first go around with Lofton either. Him and Lofton had words back in 2005 when Beckett was with the Marlins and Lofton was with the Phils.

I recall pretty clearly the Beckett-Howard episode. Beckett's a big fella, but I don't know if I'd start jawing with Howard. All I can think of is a lion mauling a gazelle.

Beckett=Red Sox pitcher=Red Sox player=Douchenozzle. Get your ass on the mound and pitch. This kid is shaping up to be the next Clemens with his mound antics and carefully manicured chunt.

Lofton's a grade-A prick(any wonders why he's played on so many teams?), but for Beckett to get pissed over that is assinine.

beckett was in the wrong to say anything. the real problem is manny. he should be fined by mlb for hi appearance every time he plays a game

Beckett needs to learn to respect his elders. He's got tons of game but, he must b out of his mind thinking he can mouth off like that. Pitchers=Quarterbacks except quarterbacks can take a hit. Beckett you would get bad-assed.
By the way, props to the "lion mauling a gazelle" analogy

Kenny Lofton should do the game a favour and retire already.

He's bounced from team to team for a reason. The guy is a complete a**hole

Why are you talking about this? Don't you know that Joe Torre is a bigger story?????????????

Don't you watch ESPN?

Look shut up, they both suck

But this just reaffirms, for some reason, that Mike Lowell is my real father. I love that guy. Like family love.

I HATE the Red Sox, but I don't mind Beckett's antics. Lofton's schtick DOES show up the pitcher and Beckett didn't appreciate it 2 years ago, why would it be different now.

If I was a Red Sox fan, thank God I'm not because I like women, Beckett getting crazy pissed is what I would want. Crank up the intensity, he's a much better pitcher when he's locked in.

Yes, Beckett is a very good pitcher when he's acting like a douchebag...which is why he had a 3.27 ERA this year.

As a man and as a fan of the great olde game of base-ball I must state that I am shocked... SHOCKED! By these diva-antics exhibited by the once great Red Sox players. Way to go Kenny, stick it right back at those babies!!!

If that was Bob Gibson jawing at Kenny Lofton all of you would think it was cool because it's old school. You can't have it two ways. You can't want the Indian pitchers to drill Manny (they wont because they're pussies) and get pissed when Beckett gets irate over someone's antics at the plate.

Kenny Lofton was no better than Manny Ramirez and Josh Beckett has the balls to do what the Tribe pitchers dont.

We can all argue who's a douche and who isn't until we're blue in the douche. The bottom line is, baseball is boring and this proves that queef bombs are the primary players. Look it up, I found it.

What other sport could mental patients understand better than most of the old guard that played and currently announce the game? Oh, that's right, all sports. Athletes are dumber than a carton of milk.

Beckett's a Punk. Kenny about half his size and twice his age would still thump his ass like the marshmellow he is!

It's too bad all Yankees fans have left to do is comment on Red Sox games. Beckett is the best pitcher in baseball.

beckett is the greatest pitcher of all time, and lofton pissed because he cant hit off of him...beckett has every right to be cocky-he deserves it. so lofton can take that bat at shove it up his ass...because he just got shut down by beckett.

Johsh Beckett is a no class, Texas shitbag. He blows old men in the Boston Greyhound station.

I thought that was him. On the bright side, he has very good technique.
