So, anyway, missed the start of the Red Sox game last night. Got caught up in a few chores and didn’t tune in to the early innings. It was on my mind, however. There was genuine hope that John Lackey, the Sox starter with the Ray Romano voice and the John Wasdin fastball, would come out all fierce and get the Sox back on track.
Heck, the Sox needed a strong, confident showing from their man after the gut wrenching extra innings loss the night before, right?
Right around the time one could reasonably assume the Red Sox were in the fourth or fifth inning, just before I fired up the old laptop and logged in to MLB TV, my cell phone beeped once. Picking it up I saw a text message from good friend and enormous Red Sox fan, Garrett.
Right there and then, I knew.
I just knew it. Before I even opened the message up I knew what to expect. Lackey was getting beaten around Fenway Park like an Eastside hopper who wandered too close to the Westside.
