John Lackey is Pissed, Man

Mom always said 'never judge a book by its cover' but I've always felt that Angels pitcher John Lackey just looks like a real stupid, dense person. Hard to explain, but he's got that dumb jock, glazed expression look all the time. And evidently, he's not too into sportsmanship, either, judging by his post-game comments in the Los Angeles Times this morning. A quick sample:

"We lost to a team that's not better than us," growled pitcher John Lackey, who gave up two runs and seven hits in seven innings. "We are a better team than they are. The last two days, we shouldn't have given up anything."

Lackey - who was no doubt NOT better than Jon Lester twice in this series - goes on to give Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia crap for combining to knock in the Sox' first two runs earlier in the game. I understand his emotions are raw, and I can emphathize with the extreme disappointment he and his mates must be feeling after AGAIN getting pushed aside by the Red Sox. It has to sting, this incredible dominance the Sox have had over these clowns going all the way back to Dave Henderson, Donnie Moore and 1986.

How you say, baseball's BUFFALO BILLS?
