Chad Beck has been known to have hot coals laid before him as a pathway to the mound. He would remove his cleats and socks to slowly walk on the coals on his way to the mound. This caused a great delay to many games, however the fear it instilled in his opponents was second to none.

Now they’ve blown it. Clean house, fire N.H.!

No loss here, don’t need relievers who don’t miss bats.

Chad Beck is known to be an outspoken leader and fiercely competitive. The Pirates organization is sorely lacking in both those areas and he would have helped tremendously. Sad to say this is yet another move ringing the death knell for the 2013 season.
