    Lackey usually pitch well at Fenway Park.  Most of his wins are at Fenway.  Fisher usually struggled against the Sox.  Having a win against the Tigers would be a good start cuz tomorrow Sox will face the best pitcher in MLB. 

    Go Sox!!

    Actually favorable for Sox, No Verlander, or Sanchez. Lackey is excellent at Fenway. Their best starter here. 1st game is huge with Dempster going the last game.

    Let me be the first to say it--please get Lackey some runs today.  He deserves better support.

    That would be nice wouldn't it. He'd be a 20 game winner with the support Doubront gets.

    I'm sure the Beast will be in Line-up tomorrow, since he got a .625 avg. against Lester. He's only hitting .333 against Lackey good day off.

    He's hitting .417 against King Felix, wow.

    You are so right.  He would have loved the run support Doubront got yesterday. He would have saved our bullpen by going seven or eight.

    Hope Carp plays tomorrow against Scherzer... What does Carp have to get a regular platooning?

    I was thinking the same thing.  It's amazing with the year that Lackey has had and the Sox have had that he has a losing record. 

    As bad as 8-11 looks (I don't put that much weight into w/l) I'd have to imagine that an average pitcher would render 4-6 more losses in those games that Lackey has won for us (including games we won and he got a ND)  So despite his losing record, you could argue that in the absence of John Lackey we are just a WC team. 

    Hopefully today is the day they give him some run support.  Fister probably isn't the best candidate to make this prediction.  Then again It never surprises me when the Sox struggle against bad pitchers and hit the good ones.  Anything can happen, and this team is playing well.

    Cabrera is hitting .418 5 HRS, 18rbi's last 13 games against Boston. I doubt he sits. It would be a shock. Though the Tigers went 8-1 without Miggy in Line-up.

    Lackey in 10 starts at Fenway 5-2, 2.24 era.

    That's the way I view most series.  If we win the first, the pressure is on the Tigers.  and it is a winnable game.  Fister is wildly inconsistent.  In his past 13 games, he has allowed 6 ERs or more 4 times, and has allowed 2 ERs or less 7 times.

    Re: Game Thread 139: Tigers at Red Sox

    Is there a new rule I haven't heard about? Lke, not being allowed to sacrifice with runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs? This new rule allows the pitcher to throw a doble-play ground ball, so he can slip out of the inning without any runs scoring.

    Or, maybe, it's because nobody teaches people how to bunt, anymore. (?)

    Do you get the feeling that Lackey has to be perfect in order to have just a chance at a win?
