Hey look at that! A decisive win!

No dodged bullets.

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?

Nope.

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!
