Since everything has to be a competition around these parts, we're going to take John Lackey's starting performance and pit it up against the Sox bullpen's performance as a whole after Lackey was lifted from the game with two outs in the 7th inning.

Steve Buckley, who joined Gary Tanguay and Joe Haggerty on Sports Tonight, has his answer.

"I understand going into this series there were concerns about the bridge between the starting rotation and Koji Uehara in the 9th inning. I understand that. I was absolutely mesmerized with what Lackey did today. When you consider again where he was coming back, losing the weight and all that, I understand he had a fine season, but he was not particularly good - they were hitting shots off him in the Division Series - for him to go up, 6.2 shutout innings just four hits, no walks, eight strikeouts. Completely in charge there."

So Buck is going with Lackey, what are you going with? Leave your answer in the comments section.
