This is what passes for sports reporting in Boston these days: The CHB and some other dude talking about whether John Lackey is now a sympathetic person.
Not about whether he can pitch. Not about whether he can pitch well. But whether the fans (and media, of course) are ready to accept him as a Red Sox.
Sample analysis: "I don't know what we're going to get out of him. ... But first Lackey's gonna need to get back on the field."
Hey, and Silva sounds as effeminate as Shaughnessy. It's Douche Squared.
