John Lackey Deserves Second Chance From Red Sox Fans After Third Consecutive Strong Start

John Lackey has been on a bit of a tear recently. In his last three starts, he's posted a 1.96 ERA and has put the Red Sox in the driver's seat of Friday night's game against the Seattle Mariners.

NESN Nation's Nate Hinchey thinks that Lackey might deserve a little bit of slack from Red Sox fans that have been on his case a little bit after the pitcher's early struggles.

Why? Watch the video to find out, but we'll just say it has something to do with America, the Pilgrims and Nicolas Cage.
