Good morning fellow Bostonians and blog readers, its time for another breakfast post, brought to you by your favorite malcontent BCHysteria. It's Friday, and I have evolved past the obvious Rebecca Black jokes, so you won't be seeing any of those today. Boston got a break last night from the heart stopping NBA and NHL Playoffs, which is great because my central nervous system resembles that of someone with post traumatic stress disorder (Pysch dork talk right there). Part of me wishes there was a game last night because I am kind of impatient, with the Bruins I just want the Flyers to die, and with the Heat I want to know if series is over after 3 games. But alas, I will have to wait until this weekend to get those answers.
On the other hand we had day baseball yesterday. The hometown crew had our favorite mongoloid John Lackey pitching, against Joel "I sucked hard when I was on the Red Sox" Pineiro. Lackey had been pitching pretty well, and you gotta figure the Sox would light up a pitcher who highlights an 87mph fastball. WRONG. Lackey was terrible. Like beginning of the season terrible, for all of those Lackey haters out there it was truly a return to form. For a span of 15 minutes John Lackey must have let up 10 hits in a row, though one of those innings could have been stopped earlier if Jacoby Ellsbury and his highly overrated defense didn't misread a fly ball. But whatever, that's not the point. The Sox bats acted like they were swinging a wet noodle, Lackey got chased early, and BCHysteria shut off the game by the 5th inning. Hurray baseball!
This weekend the Red Sox have the Twins coming in for a four game series, luckily without Raquel's heartthrob Joe Mauer. In fact, the Twins are playing baseball at a pretty terrible rate right now. But Tim Wakefield is pitching tonight, and no matter how much the pink hats clamor about him, he hasn't been any good in like 5 years. Also on Monday the Sox will be sending Lester to the mound against Francisco Liriano, who just threw one of the statistically worst no hitters in history this week. I don't know how this weekend is going to turn out for the Sox...not to be a Debbie Downer but I really don't have a good feeling about it.
