“Well, you’re ugly too.”

Sorry. One of my favorite old jokes. Anyway.

A day after Josh Beckett went to San Antonio to get his wonky thumb looked at, he is on his way to the shores of Lake Erie to get a second opinion, this time at the Cleveland Clinic.

While one might assume this is worrisome — why get a second opinion if you’re told you’re fine? — the report is that Beckett is just getting the second opinion for his own “peace of mind,” and that everyone still expects him to make his scheduled start on Saturday.
