When asked by Karl R. if he thought that John Lackey should be considered the frontrunner for the Cy Young this year, Joe said yes, because, "his team is playing well
, and he's 'the man.'"
Emphasis mine. Irrelevancy his.
Can someone explain why the team's performance on the 80% of days Lackey does not pitch should affect whether he gets the award for best pitcher?
Also, please read Junior's attack on Eric Wilbur below. It's way better than this piddling little post. I'm just in a bad mood because it turns out Yakov had no Labor Day Weekend shows scheduled
. I was all set to see the 9:30 and the 3:00, and instead I get nothing. What a country.
