« Jim Rice Falls Short of Hall of Fame Again | Main | Patriots Two Wins Away From Perfection: Advance to AFC Championship »

January 09, 2008




Boston Red Sox starting pitcher and 2007 Cy Young runner-up, Josh Beckett, was arrested early Friday morning at Meyer Park in his hometown, Spring, Texas.

Beckett was seen by local eye-witnesses around 1:30 a.m CST walking with a female lamb near the northeastern corner of Meyer Park. Unrecognizable at first, the witnesses (who prefer to remain anonymous) followed Beckett as he proceeded to the park center. Upon catching up with Beckett, the witnesses heard distressed bleeting from the lamb and were astounded to find him naked from the waist down, standing behind the lamb.

Beckett was arrested within minutes for what is being referred to as beastiality. The lamb, as a result of brutal sexual acts on its behalf, was euthanized at a local veterninary clinic due to intense bleeding.

While Beckett was released around 8:00 am CST today, the lamb’s owner, Clay McClinn, has vowed to press charges, regardless of the town’s favorite son being the culprit.

“That (expletive) lamb rapist needs to be behind bars! What, he thinks he can walk on to my farm, steal from my herd, fail to show it a good time, and walk away scott free? Not on my watch!” said McClinn.

Beckett, who posted a 20-7 record in 2007, went on to win the World Series with the Red Sox and finished second to C.C. Sabathia of the Cleveland Indians in Cy Young voting.

The Red Sox have declined to comment on Beckett’s standing with the team, but it is believed that he will report to Spring Training next month in Fort Meyers.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
