But How Does He REALLY Feel?
Amy and I were discussing over email the other day how amusing it is that we're getting what amounts to hourly Josh Beckett mood updates. Like the Extra Bases blog is always with the "Josh Beckett: Still Cranky," or the "Beckett, still cursing at reporters." And while we both agree that he's an excellent pitcher and one we certainly don't care to lose to injury, it's all a bit much. Plus, these are the kind of things you have to laugh about, lest they kill you.
So with that in mind, we created a handy little Josh Beckett Mood-O-Meter which allows you to know Beckett's mental state simply by color-coding. We're thinking he should perhaps start wearing colored patches on his uniform or something to alert us to how he's feeling so that we should all know how to proceed.
With apologies to Go Fug Yourself and their excellent Bloat-Watch and Tanorexia Watch (and also, I suppose, to the Department of Homeland Security), I present the Josh Beckett Mood-O-Meter.
