On Tuesday night, the hatred towards Josh Beckett may have reached its peak, as the fans booed the pitcher after leaving the game due to back spasms. There were cries that he just didn't feel like pitching in the rain, and others claimed that his conditioning led to the injury. On his radio show, Michael Felger even insinuated that we would be able to find Beckett on the golf course yesterday. Gordon Edes has decided that the fans have spoken, and Cherington should accept their point of view. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston)

  • Even though the traditional trade deadline has passed, there is still the August 30th waiver deadline. Although there typically aren't major moves made at this time, it does happen. In fact, Beckett has been rumored to be made available in the coming month. Here, we can see a number of significant deals made in the month of August. (Baseball Prospectus)
  • With July in the books, the Red Sox find themselves in a similar position as they have been in all year. They're still hovering around .500, and are still in contention for a wild card spot. Tim Britton takes a look back at the month that was. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)
  • Anyone who is on Twitter knows that fake accounts have been running rampant lately, and many people have been duped by them. A lot of them are tweeting out ridiculous things, and they are still being believed, even by some pretty prominent writers. (Cee Angi; The Platoon Advantage)
  • With the season entering the stretch run, it's about the time when debates on who should win which award will start to begin. Glenn DuPaul takes a look at just how MVPs should be decided, and who is the runaway favorite for the NL MVP. (Glenn DuPaul; Hardball Times)
  • Late last night, it was announced that Derek Lowe was designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians. This may be the end of the former fan favorite's career, but he'll always be welcome back in Boston after his contributions to the 2004 championship team. (Drew Silva; Hardball Talk)
