Appropos of that earlier post, Rob Bradford of WEEI is reporting that Red Sox pitcher John Lackey was fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli on Tuesday night.

I for one am shocked — shocked! — that Major League Baseball did not accept Lackey’s word that he wasn’t really trying to hit Cervelli.  And really, if we can’t take each other at our words, society really doesn’t have a chance, does it.

Free John Lackey.  Or not.  Whatever.
