If you've never checked out the Boston Dirt Dogs website, do yourself a favor and give it a click. While it's primarily Red Sox related, it contains plenty of clever material, some of it even poking fun at the hometown team. (Though I find humorous and hugely hypocritical the dig at the "store-bought" Yankees at the same time they're bemoaning the failure of Sox leadership to win the bidding war for Mark Teixeira. Now if that ain't calling the kettle black.).
Scroll down to the bottom of the link to the item titled "Blame Cake Is Done," and read the item about Josh Beckett, which takes a jab at his stock "executing pitches" line, questions whether he can still be classified as "ace" quality, and asks "Can we re-do the Hanley Ramirez trade now?" If you haven't noticed, they've been having a few shortstop issues up in Beantown.
Question: Never mind Mike Lowell, Anibal Sanchez, Guillermo Mota and all the others involved in the Nov. 24, 2005, blockbuster. If you could do a Ramirez for Beckett trade straight up, right this second, would you do it?
