Josh Beckett has had a rough 2012 season, and because of this, the Red Sox might be open to trading him. In order to do that this year, though, he needs to clear waivers. Boston placed Beckett on waivers on Thursday morning, and because of his significant salary over the next two-plus years, it's very likely he'll go unclaimed.
Once he's unclaimed and clears waivers, he can be traded anywhere. Whether he will be, or should be, is a different discussion, though. That's the topic of the latest Over the Monster YouTube video, found after the jump.

On a totally unrelated note, this might be the last video where you have to stare at that background, as my place of residence changes in a week. What new and exciting backdrop will I have at my disposal then?
Should the Red Sox trade Josh Beckett this summer or off-season, or hope for a 2013 rebound?
