    Welcome back, John Lackey ... Now hit the showers

    It's been a fun and goofy weekend so far, what with A-Rod walking it off in the Bronx, Lou Piniella telling a fan not to question his bullpen decisions and pompom giveaway night in Miami turning into a royal mess.

    But my favorite scene on Saturday happened down in Texas, where Angels ace John Lackey(notes), fresh off the DL and making his much-anticipated first start of the season, was ejected just two pitches into the game by umpire Bob Davidson.

    Yes, two pitches.

    You can watch the video here and judge for yourself, but apparently Davidson felt that Lackey wanted to begin his 2009 season by throwing two purpose pitches at Rangers' leadoff man Ian Kinsler(notes), who homered against the Angels twice on Friday night. Lackey's first pitch sailed wide of Kinsler and the second ended up hitting him, prompting an immediate tossing by Davidson even though no warning was issued between the two.
