"Thanks, dudes."

A standing ovation for the recently struggling but positively-brilliant-last-night John Lackey?

Well played, Fenway crowd. Well played indeed.

And I don’t care that it was against the Orioles. The Lackey Turnaround Project has got to begin somewhere. If it started last night, it bodes well for the second half.

Last Sox game until Friday this afternoon. It’s the Kyle Weiland debut episode. You won’t want to miss it.
