Jul 26, 17, 10:22 AM #16I liked Lackey's comments after the game:
"I wasn't trying to hit anybody, but I totally get the other side, too," Lackey said. "Tell Happy, my bad, apologize for that, have to buy him something nice for getting hit. But the game polices itself. Whether I intentionally did it or not, I get it on the other side. You've got to take care of your guys too."
("Happy" is rookie Ian Happ...the Cub who got plunked in retaliation in the bottom of the 5th.)Advertisement

Jul 26, 17, 06:03 PM #18What is funny is the Cubs announcers downplayed the 4 batters Lackey hit with a "he isn't trying to hit them". But when ChiSox pitcher Beck hits Happ he says "Seriously? Just throw him out. He needs to be ejected"

Listen to some of the announcers on XM radio and you get a good appreciation for the local announcers on the Reds games. Some of them are almost unbearable to listen to.
