Who’s Your Lackey?

A one-run loss that only John Lackey got worked up about, such is the state of Red Sox baseball. The hulking starter must have pilloried Bill Hall for his seventh-inning throwing error on Jack Cust’s grounder to left that allowed Oakland its first run. Never you mind that Lackey had surrendered a leadoff double to Daric Barton to start the inning.

Ryan Kalish warranted at least an exasperated eye-roll and head title from Lackey for his spectacular yet failed diving attempt to snatch Rajai Davis’s fly ball to center field later in the inning. The resulting triple allowed the go-ahead run to score. That Lackey previously allowed Mark Ellis to rope a single to center to drive in the tying run was of no import; obviously Lackey was pitching well enough to win.

I’m afraid to say I’m like Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens leaving the field early when it comes to this team at this point in the season. At Gillette Stadium the pair of Bengals wide receivers were on their way to the locker room before the second quarter ended, leaving Carson Palmer to heave a hail Mary that was caught by Jordan Shipley just three yards short of the end zone.

I’m far from a fashion plate as you can imagine; the closest I’ve come to couture is Isaac Mizrahi’s line at Target, although that partnership might be over given the chain store’s funding of anti-gay Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer. Despite my lack of knowledge in matters sartorial I enjoyed the coverage of the “From Fenway to the Runway” fundraiser at the Natick Collection more than the game itself.

There haven’t been any drama queens or diva wives to replace Michelle Damon and Shonda Schilling, but Lindsay Buchholz, former “Deal or No Deal” model, has promise. She had an official site before she got hitched but it hasn’t been updated since 2006. She’s probably too preoccupied being a loving wife and mother to the couple’s newborn. The team really is no longer a band of idiots but a bland of brothers.
