Lackey not starting?

Postby RedSoxNation04 » Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:47 am

Anyone know why Lackey is not starting tonight? I'm fighting for my plaoff life here and based on Yahoo's projections, he's not listed as a starter anywhere over the next couple days. He last pitched on the 6th so his turn in the rotation is here but there are no player notes indicating why he's not in there and he also was only fined for leaving the bench the other day when Hunter and Pudge got into it.

If he's not pitching for some reason, I now have to choose between Morrow against ANA, Marcum agains CHI or Marquis against HOU....not looking good for this guy right now... :-t

The Angels clinched and he's probably gonna get some extra days off.

That was my assumption and this does not help my team at all... :-P

But how many days are they planning to give him off? I mean, they don't want to ruin his routine here. It looks like they are simply skipping his spot in the rotation. Usually teams only do that if theres some sort of injury.

Yeah, this kills me too. I'm going to have to pick up a spot starter now to make my minimum.

With how horrible Webb was doing, I was thinking about benching him... now theres no way I can do that.

Any chance ANA comes out flat tonight and Morrow throws a gem?

I'd go with Marcum. At least Quentin is out.

I did and very happy for it!

Of course, with a 30 inning req, I had to throw Morrow as well now that Marquis' start got wiped out due to the hurricane.
