Neat Afternoon, John Lackey

Hey, the Red Sox are playing a baseball game against the Angels! Let's check in to see how they're doing!

Not very well! And the reason why can be summed up in two words: John Lackey. Here's his line today: 

4 IP, 10 H, 8 R (all earned!), 3 BB, 1 K

Lackey has made six starts in 2011 -- he has allowed six or more earned runs now in half of them; his ERA is 7.16. 

Is there no end to the baseball stupidity? Down 9-0, Ortiz thrown out at 2d by 5ft trying to stretch single into double. #baseballdildonacyless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Brutal outing for Lackey, who hears loud boos on way back to dugout: 8 R, 10 H, 3 B, 1 HB, 1 K. ERA up to 7.16 .less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply
