John Lackey

John Lackey had a bad outing. Let’s everybody give him a big hug! After getting lit up on Wednesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, Lackey sounded off to the media, not holding back any of his frustration and even taking a cheap shot at Toronto utility infielder John McDonald.

The St. Louis starters will each flirt with perfection, but L.A. will manage to score three measly runs in the three game series; one per game. Each run will be come via a solo blast by Manny Ramirez, still trying to show the baseball world that he can ruin anything special that baseball has to offer. The other series will be much the same, with the Philadelphia Phillies starting Cliff Lee in three games against the Colorado Rockies, just to see if he can finally prove that he actually is better than Roy Halladay. He’ll win two, but it will take a group effort for Philadelphia to clinch the divisional series.
