  • That new Josh Beckett is bad news for Padres in Dodgers' 4-2 win

    Josh Beckett, the Reinvented Man, was at it again Saturday. He was back throwing blanks, back dropping that curveball from the heavens and back looking like a very different pitcher from the guy who used to sneer and simply overpower hitters. This...
