"That's the first time I've pitched in the rain here, I think. It was pretty crazy to warm up in the rain. But I've played in Boston for more than a year now, so I've gotten used to throwing in the rain." -- Lackey has to rain on our parade and remind us that we have the worst weather in the world in Boston
