The truth finally came out yesterday: Jon Lester told the Boston Globe that the Boston Red Sox pitching staff would drink beer and eat fried chicken during games.
Whether is was just a ninth-inning rally beer, like Lester said, or full-on drinking during the games, things need to change.
The new Red Sox manager needs to impose new rules about pitchers heading into the clubhouse during the games while the other players are working their tails off on the field to win a game.
Yeah, they may not be pitching that day, but it is good to be on the bench and support your teammates.
Maybe the Red Sox should impose a bathroom pass rule, like Jack McKeon did back when he coached Josh Beckett on the Florida Marlins, because it appears that Beckett has issues with not drinking during games.
