Sorry! Gotta call it like I see it.... Sounds like the same old same old ST nonsense I've grown accustomed to hearing from Lackey every ST! "So few pitches in the 1st, it's all about getting up & down a few times.......getting my pitches in....... hitting my spots.... Arm strength good.... yada yada yada."
I've heard the same song & dance from him every ST. The only thing different is his attitude & his being in good shape! BRAVO for that!!!! Still, the results are always the same....
Admittedly, I've been killing the guy since he stepped foot in Boston, BUT I've really been hoping to jump behind him this ST as he did come into camp with a great attitude (much dif. than the last few years), and seemingly in GREAT SHAPE.
I just don't see it happening. He is what he is! So far, 3 innings, & he's given up 4 runs. NOT GOOD! In fact, he's sucked! PERIOD!
Now some of you ladies are about to come unglued??? Let me remind you how off the charts, breathlessly atwitter you've been over JBJ. If you bash me over bashing Lackey with the small sample, you might want to get ahold of yourself with respect to JBJ. Your scorn over my blaspheming Lackey, juxtaposed to your teenybopper giddiness with JBJ is simply laughable.
For the record..... I really like JBJ!!!! Just preemptively pointing out your hypocrisy. :)
Now man up & have at me! :)
You must be knew to following spring training.
Every pitcher says the same thing -- getting his work in; working on pitches; building up arm strength; working on mechanics.
Did you really think that a pitcher who is coming back from Tommy John surgery was going to be lights out from the get-go in spring training. Are you that stupid?
Is your post just simply to get responses or are you serious in your remarks, in which case, yeah, I guess you are that stupid.
Sounds like the same old same old ST nonsense I've grown accustomed to hearing from Lackey every ST!
Really? Are you talking about his 2011 spring training when he posted a 1.72 ERA and allowed just three runs in 15.6 innings.
I know -- you're talking about his 2010 spring training when he posted a 1.35 ERA and allowed just three runs in 20 innings.
