Yes, they just got done doing the equivalent of having a catch.
Yes, Lackey and Lester both look a little bizarre smiling.
And yes, it's February; but two things about this picture make me giddy.
One? It's baseball, albeit Spring Training; that only means we're one day closer to Opening Day and the regular season and I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa to get here.
Two? It's THE FIRST DAY and Beckett looks like his dog died, he's got a case of the bends, and he's ready to curse out a nun.
Josh Beckett with a burr up his saddle and in a contract year?
Good for the Sox and REALLY bad for the rest of the American League.
