I'm glad it was Lackey
As John Lackey's designated fan, I'm pleased and proud that the crusty old fart is the one who got tonight's win.
In what was possibly the start of his career -- certainly his last regular season game -- he pitched six innings of one-run baseball and got the W that made the Cubs the 2017 Central Division Champions.
Think of it: what could be the final game of his career, he puts his team in the playoffs. Can you think of anything more perfect?
God, I love baseball!
