Lackey (10-4, 3.66) vs. López (12-7, 4.81), 4:05pm on KCAL
Pitchers sometimes try to get into opponents' heads by pretending to be wild (Nolan Ryan) or blind (Troy Percival). John Lackey's strategy seems to be the "I just woke up from a bender and I'm not sure I can pull it together" look. This year, it seems to be working.
I came into this world like a puzzled panther
Wanting to be caged
But something stood in the way
I was never quite tamed
