Big John's Had Some Big Games vs. Boston: Game 1 '09 ALCS | '08 Near No-Hitter

“Lot of life on his fastball. Looked like he was moving both ways. Threw enough breaking balls, we had to respect that, and he was able to locate his fastball again in two different directions. He was good. He was real good.’’ -- 10.08.09, Red Sox manager Terry Francona on the performance of John Lackey in Game 1 of the 2009 ALCS

Is Lackey Going to Get It On with Pedro?

"[Monday] night they scored on a broken-bat ground ball and a fly ball that anywhere else in America is an out, and he's [Pedroia] fist-pumping on second base like he did something great." -- 10.07.09, John Lackey on America's most beloved ballpark and second baseman
