Josh Beckett Doesn't Appear To Have Been Taking Steroids In The Offseason



By now, you've might have seen this increasingly infamous picture of Red Sox postseason pitching hero Josh Beckett, at spring training earlier this week.

We suspect this pictures are fairly common in spring training, and all told, it seems a little unfair to get all over Roger Clemens for his "training regimen" and then mock Beckett for being a little tubby in February. But we have to say: Do the Red Sox have the fattest rotation in recent memory? Even without Curt Schilling, they have Dice-K, Beckett and even Wakefield, who's starting to pork up a little, for a knuckleballer anyway. And this is without El Guapo.

But yeah, put this in the "Baseball Players: They're Just Like Us!" file of photos.
