Colby Lewis grew up in Bakersfield, some 150 odd miles outside La La Land, was drafted by the Rangers and bounced around to the A's and Tigers before ending up with the Rangers again. He's given up a dinger to AGon, possibly having been distracted by Jacoby Ellsbury who was wreaking havoc on the basepaths again. John Lackey grew up in Texas and went to college in Arlington, only to get drafted by the LaLangels and then signed by Boston. He finds himself pitching in the bottom half of the first at the Ballpark in Arlington tonight. Comment away.

Lackey’s gonna be fine. I liked the signing. I wanted him. I still think he’ll live up to the contract.
And that was a helluva DOP Lackey started back there.
Lackey has the skills but not the head to play in Boston.
Tito doesn’t trust his 7th inning guy, letting Lackey go well past 100 pitches here.
