Josh Beckett says he’s fine, “dumbfounded”
Josh Beckett’s flights around the country to get medical opinions on his thumb were tracked by the Red Sox press the way NORAD tracks Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. Beckett says, however, that he’s “fine.” And he adds that it’s much ado about nothing:
Chronic and degenerative is always better than quick and acute!
Just kidding. If he says he’s fine, he’s fine. But don’t be surprised if his thumb has its own beat writer assigned to it soon.
