During his introductory press conference on Tuesday, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington announced that John Lackey will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the 2012 season.

Although this news doesn’t help the team, after Lackey’s terrible performance this season fans are not really upset they won’t have to hear from him for a year.

If you’re a Sox fan that doesn’t like Lackey, you’ll enjoy this montage that Rich came up with celebrating the fact that pitcher will not be around in 2012.
