:cheers Hard to believe any bettor would have played the Angels yesterday with John Lackey on the mound. The OCA(Orange County Angels) were even a -120 fav! Lackey IS a good pitcher, but he's coming off a serious injury-juat like Kazmir of the Rays, who got shelled in is first game back, but who then won a 2-0 shut-out in his second start. The same may happen with Lackey next time out-but the lesson here is STAY AWAY FROM PITCHERS IN THEIR FIRST GAME BACK OFF THE DL. In closing, when Josh Beckett came back from Back spasams and the DL, he also got hit hard in his first forray back to the hill, and the Bosox lost as -135 favs. It happens to even the best pitchers in baseball all the time. Be careful out there!
