The Red Sox think they've identified the source of Josh Beckett's blisters. Apparently they've determined that they crop up when he has eczema break-outs. I'm neither a dermatologist nor an expert on eczema, but isn't that, like, the most obvious diagnosis ever? It's a little scary to think that the Marlins could have effectively treated his eczema outbreaks and generally avoided his blister problems but weren't smart enough to put that one together. There must be more to this one than meets the eye.
