Jonny Gomes to donate or auction flag blazer for charity

2014 Fantasy Baseball: John Lackey and Repeating 2013

Credit: AP John Lackey apparently spent 2012 locating a time machine and upon its discovery promptly turned the dial back to 2007-ish. No one expected Lackey to have any success in 2013, and honestly, why should they have? I kept expecting the wheels to fall off, but they didn’t. They kept turning, and Lackey ended the season with a World Series ring to boot. Lackey was pretty...

BOSTON — In five years, those who suited up for the Boston Red Sox on Friday probably won’t remember which team won the 2014 home opener at Fenway Park.
