Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here...
highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying as a good morning dump.
If John Lackey is going to be sidelined for any period of time -- or even for just one start -- it seems likely that the club will use Alfredo Aceves as his replacement in the starting rotation.
In his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery, the Red Sox and John Lackey got a scare. He pitched 4 1/3 innings before throwing a pitch and grabbing his arm in obvious pain. Lackey had to leave the game after the pitch, and there was some immediate concern that the injury could be related to elbow. Fortunately, it was his biceps, but the injury is still concerning...
The Red Sox have exceeded expectations through their first four games, winning three against their division rivals, the Yankees and Blue Jays. While the team as a whole seems to be clicking, closer Joel Hanrahan has stood out from the pack.
Hanrahan has proven to be worth the package Boston gave up for the longtime National League reliever — Jerry Sands, Stolmy Pimentel, Ivan DeJesus...
John Lackey‘s injury is the big news, but the Red Sox actually played a game on Saturday.
Well, they were supposed to, although it didn’t look like the offense was aware.
The Red Sox entered Saturday’s game on the heels of a decent performance on Friday night. The Sox came away from the series opener with a victory, and they banged out 12 hits in the process, but Boston failed...
You hate to see this happen after John Lackey worked so hard to return from Tommy John surgery.
Lackey threw a 2-2 pitch to Jose Reyes and immediately clutched his right bicep. Lackey left the mound in a lot of pain with his arm dangling. Lackey appeared to tweak his arm on the previous pitch.
It was Lackey’s first start since missing the entire 2012 season with Tommy John surgery...
John Lackey left with a strained biceps in his first start since September 2011, grabbing his right arm in pain and coming out in the fifth inning Saturday as the Boston Red Sox lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0.
Lackey (0-1) missed last season following elbow ligament-replacement surgery in November 2011. He allowed a two-run homer to J.P. Arencibia in the fourth, and then clutched...
The Red Sox slammed 6 home runs - 3 of them by 3rd baseman Will Middlebrooks (pictured) - and received outstanding pitching from Jon Lester as they routed the Blue Jays 13-0 at the Rogers Centre. With the win, the Red Sox finished the road trip 4-2 taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees in New York and 3 of 4 from the Blue Jays.Boston rapped out 15 hits including 4 by Middlebrooks who...
It's hard to believe that in December in 2009 John Lackey was a desired commodity. The Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, and Pittsburgh Pirates, were all interested in Lackey.
Lackey had been the Angels ace and was one of six pitchers that won at least eleven games from 2004-2009. Baseball Prospectus said that, "Lackey stands alone as...

John Farrell and the Boston Red Sox weren't fazed by a hostile reception from Toronto's fans. Instead, they turned all the boos into a boost of energy.
Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 6-4 on Friday night in Farrell's return to Toronto.
A packed house of 45,328 let Farrell have it...
