Not Even In My Wettest Dreams Did I Think John Lackey Would Do What He Did Yesterday



I have all the confidence in the world in John Lackey, I really do.  The dude has been a stud this season.  But not even in my wettest dreams did I think Lackey would do what he did in Game 3.  The guy had to be perfect and he basically was.

I dont give a shit that Justin Verlander struck out ten.  I dont give a shit that Justin Verlander struck out six in a row.  John Lackey outpitched Justin Verlander.  That is a fact.  And John Lackey won a game that most people considered an automatic loss for the Red Sox.  That is friggin pissa.

The Red Sox now lead the Tigers 2-1 in the ALCS and beat Justin Verlander.  Think about that for a second.  Think about it.
