One More Lackeydaisical Start For The Overpaid Red Sox Pitcher

That's right...overpaid. John Lacky had another stinker but right up until the dismal end of last night's game, the Boston bats never said die. But after being behind by a score of 10-2, the Red Sox could not catch up and they lost the game to the Toronto Blue Jays by a score of 11-9. It was ugly. I've been trying to figure out our $86 million dollar hurler and what I notice the most is that this year he's been an overpaid underperformer. That isn't a good combination. Far from it.

Lackey left the game after 4 1/3 innings after having given up SIX earned runs and eight hits. That was bad enough but Michael Bowden made it much worse. In one (!!) inning of work his surrendered four hits and three runs. When he exited after the bottom of the sixth, it was 10-2 Jays. The Red Sox could never overcome that gap.

I want to congratulate the five added members of the Red Sox Hall of Fame. They all were there at Friendly Fenway last night and it was great to see every one of them. Ah, memories. Sweet. But wait! The two teams do it all over tonight. Here are the details...

Sat. 18 Tor 7:10 PM ET RSN/NESN** Beckett (5-4) vs. Romero (12-9)

I hope Josh continues to pitch better and I hope you have a great weekend. Click on this post's title for more on the Sox from the Globe. Happy Saturday and as always, BE WELL.
