South Central Lackey (I’m Sorry)

Dear John Lackey: Watching you hold down the American League’s second-best team and one of our most likely playoff opponents last night, I suddenly realized how valuable you are to this team right now. And then I thought about all the not-so-awesome things I said about you when you were performing not-so-awesomely. And it made me sad. Fact is, you may not have been my favorite...

John Lackey Wins Amica Pitcher of the Week Honors After Striking Out 14 Batters in Two Starts

There have been plenty of great story lines this season for the Boston Red Sox, but John Lackey‘s return to dominance after missing the entire 2012 season may be chief among them. Lackey now has a 2.78 ERA with 93 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings. The season got off to a rough start, too, when he left his first start of the season after just 4 1/3 innings after injuring his biceps...

And while both pitchers hold 6-6 records, AMAZO-Lackey boasts a 2.80 ERA and the...

Boston Red Sox/Oakland Athletics Preview

The Boston Red Sox will start their final series before the all-star break Friday night against the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum.

The pitcher...

Four Real? Red Sox vs A's 7-12-13

Pete Lepak RedSoxLife Staff Writer Game 95: Lackey gets it done, Sox win 4-2 John Lackey went seven strong innings to carry the Red Sox over the A's on Friday night. Although he walked four, Lackey only gave up three hits, and his defense carried him in some tight situations.

Red Sox-Athletics Preview

After a disappointing start, John Lackey feels like he's throwing the ball as well as any time during his successful career. The right-hander hopes for another strong start while trying to help the Boston Red Sox avoid a seventh consecutive road loss to the Oakland Athletics in a matchup of division leaders Friday night. Returning from elbow surgery that erased his entire 2012...

Jon Lester’s Good Effort Gets Spoiled, As Red Sox’ Opportunistic Offense Doesn’t Show Up

It’s been a Jekyll and Hyde season for Jon Lester, so it’s important to take advantage of his good days. The Red Sox didn’t do so on Saturday. Lester, who was a model of consistency from 2008 to 2011 before a rocky 2012 campaign, started 2013 in impressive fashion. Since beginning the year 6-0, however, Lester has become a symbol of inconsistency, as there’s simply no telling...

Moneyballed

If we learned anything from the book and film Moneyball, it’s that the teams that win games are the teams that score runs. The Red Sox didn’t do any scoring last night, held in check by the notorious A. J. Griffin, so they copped a loss. I’m not gonna dwell too much on it, other than to say despite the loss, Jon Lester put in a decent performance giving up just three runs...

A’s Blank Red Sox 3-0 Behind A.J. Griffin, Timely Hitting

A.J. Griffin notched one of his most impressive outings as a big-leaguer in the Oakland A’s 3-0 victory over Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night. After striking out Jacoby Ellsbury on three pitches leading off the game, Griffin gave up a single to center off the bat of Shane Victorino. Dustin Pedroia (last night’s hero for Boston) popped out to Lowrie for the...
