No sweating it out.
Sure Lackey made it a little more interesting than it needed to be but did you REALLY think the Sox were going to lose?
So Lackey becomes a 12 game winner and has a shot to win 15 games this year… and his ERA will be over 5.
And I don’t care. Would I rather have a lucky winner or a hard luck loser?
I’d rather have the wins piling up.
AND with the Yankees losing and the fact that it will take just a tie with the Yankees to win the Division…
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 35!
