connecting directly with the fans,” Lackey said. “Not everyone gets

traveling to

Milwaukee to play the Indians

It will be fun to give the fans a little closer look at what I experience
during the season.”

great personality and shoots straight from the hip. His blog promises to be
insightful and entertaining.”
