    Best blog post ever!!!

    Wait, what?? In all seriousness, when did he have the surgery? (yes, I know he’s only throwing a little, but it seems fast to me.)

      To be fair, he’s probably going to be totally sh#tfaced when he does it.

        The guy’s an effin drunk! they should have sent him to rehab.

    Well…least he’s healthy, for now. It’d definitely help us out if he could earn a little bit of that $17MM next year…

      I’m surprisingly comfortable paying him to sit on the bench.

    They want to get him in 3 games before the end of the year so they can ship him to Cleveland in the off season for Chris Perez and 2 minor league infielders.

      Chris Perez is too shy and unassuming to survive in the Red Sox clubhouse.

    Was a comeback expected this year for him? I thought he was scratched for the year. I was under the impression that pitchers don’t throw for at least 10 months. Seems silly to rush him back ,for little upside, unless they’re trying to trade him.

  7. xmatt0926x - Sep 7, 2012 at 5:20 PM

    I find it disturbing that people keep focusing on his horrible pitching as opposed to those intimidating bulldog-like faces he makes on the mound as he’s being hammered yet again….

    World Series bound!

      Seriously, is it just me or does John Lackey look like Monroe from Grimm? Every time I catch that show, I feel a little softer toward John Lackey.

      • pisano - Sep 8, 2012 at 12:10 AM

        24… try Gomer Pyle for a look a like, and he’s just about as bright.

    How is it that the dodgers did not end up with this guy?
