Player Explains Scandal, Digs Deeper Hole

March 27, 2012 by staff 

Player Explains Scandal, Digs Deeper Hole, Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey is set to spend the 2012 season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. As such, the 33-year-old righthander is planning to keep a low-profile in the clubhouse as he goes about his work.

But what kind of Red Sox season would it be if Lackey didn’t stick his foot in his mouth and come away looking like a lout at least once? In talking with Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy about last year’s collapse – and the “fried chicken and beer” media firestorm that followed – Lackey drops a word that most of us left behind on the grade school playground.

From the Boston Globe: “Guys having a beer after their start has been going on for the last 100 years,” Lackey said. “This is retarded. It’s not like we were sitting up there doing it every night. It’s not even close to what people think.”
