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.
