Dear Mr. Lackey: I don't like you, and the thought of watching you pitch for the Red Sox for the next 3.5 years is not a pleasant one. Nevertheless, I (and many others) would greatly appreciate it if you performed at even a minimal level of competence tonight, so as to give your teammates a chance to win. Thanking you in advance...Update: He's worse then I ever imagined. More on Lackey's suckatude:
In four of Lackey's seven starts this year, he has allowed 6, 8, 9, and 9 runs. His ERA is now 8.01. In 39.1 innings, he has allowed 53 hits and 18 walks (1.8 base runners per inning). He's robbing the Sox blind on paydays. One SoSH wag said Lackey is fulfilling his promise as our #2 pitcher - he's pitching like shit.
