John Lackey threw 67 pitches yesterday in a rehab stint with the Portland Sea Dogs, going 3 2/3 innings and giving up three hits against five strikeouts. Nice job, Lack. I continue to be optimistic about what he can bring to the Red Sox this year.
Even better, Lackey followed baseball protocol and treated the team to dinner, appropriately choosing lobster, pictured above via Kolbrin Vitek's Instagram account. Yes, I follow Kolbrin Vitek on Instagram. Technology.
The Dogs are 10-7 on the year with a pretty talented roster including top prospect Xander Bogaerts, a hopefully not drunk Drake Britton, and old friend Daniel Bard.
