Game 85: Someone Not Named Lackey Pitches

New, comments

This game should be worth watching, because John Lackey will not be pitching.

Or at least so you think! But then you see the lineup!

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Marco Scutaro, SS
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  5. David Ortiz, DH
  6. Darnell McDonald, LF
  7. Jason Varitek, C
  8. J.D. Drew, RF
  9. Yamaico Navarro, 3B

Suddenly it occurs to you that there's probably some reality television on somewhere. Maybe Fox has something with Gordon Ramsay on! Perhaps he'll call someone a donkey! And if all else fails, there's always a Law & Order or CSI repeat to be seen somewhere.

But wait! Not so fast! You haven't seen the pitching matchup!

...guy who's been pitching a lot like John Lackey.

(Though he costs a lot less)

So, hey, picture John Lackey's face on Brett Cecil, and suddenly this is three free hours of therapy! I hope. . .

Go Sox!
