Lackey started the season out super sharp with back to back quality starts allowing 2 runs in 13 innings. He’s not been the same in his last couple getting hammered for 20 hits and 12 earned runs in 11 innings. What is disturbing is that two starts back he allowed 4 HRs to the Yankees and that followed that up with a 4 walk outing to Baltimore. That leads me to believe that confidence may another factor he is dealing with currently and obviously not a team that I want to back until he shows that he has regained his form. New York starter Michael Pineda has started 3 games and registered a quality start in all 3 including in that 6 inning 4 hits, 7 strikeouts and 1 earned run outing against the Red Sox. Take New York Yankees +113.
