it rarely gets to 93... its more on the 91mph side... hence his suckatude. its irritating to see how he'll still try to pitch like a power pitcher...

not true. he's was

its good that lester/bucholz is actually seeing beckett's demise first hand though... because those two actually have decent offspeed/cutters.
thats why Dice-K was such a fucking enigma. He actually had a great 97mph fastball that he refused to use. Now after tommy john he's joining beckett in the suckage club.
