John Lackey Trade Revisited: Will Red Sox Regret Deal With Cardinals?

Baseball is all about calculated risk-taking. The Boston Red Sox sought to master the art at the Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. The Red Sox made a bevy of moves in July geared toward positioning themselves for a more rewarding 2015. As John Lackey pitches into October with the St. Louis Cardinals, it’s reasonable to wonder whether the Red Sox will at some point...

The best gift ever exchanged for a jersey number?

When John Lackey was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the St. Louis Cardinals at the deadline, he was confronted with a conundrum, a relatively minor one in the grand scheme of things, but a conundrum nevertheless. Lackey, much like many of his professional sports-playing contemporaries — especially baseball players — apparently is something […] The post John Lackey gave Pat...

Cardinals look forward to Lackey's debut at Busch

Plugging John Lackey's .093 career batting average into the lineup is unlikely to help the St. Louis Cardinals continue digging themselves out of an offensive funk. Good thing he brings with him an 18-10 record and 3.07 ERA against NL teams. Lackey was brought to St. Louis to bolster the starting staff and help track down the Milwaukee Brewers, and he'll get an opportunity...

Lackey says he will play for league minimum next season

John Lackey has officially been a St. Louis Cardinal for just a shade over 24 hours, but he’s already committing to his new ballclub for another year. The Cardinals acquired the right-hander from the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, and with Lackey, came his funky contract.

Lackey Wants Trade; Royals And Marlins Spots?

Multiple sources have reported this afternoon that John Lackey is "demanding" a trade from the Red Sox. The reasons for the demand are unclear. Earlier today, the Miami Marlins expressed interest in Lackey as a solid starting option that would be more than just a 2-month rental. Those rumors have since been at least partially quashed. Also earlier today, the Kansas City...

John Lackey May Also Be On The Trading Block

(Getty Images)Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything) reports that there has been "lots of interest" in a trade for Red Sox starter John Lackey. While Boston would prefer to deal Jake Peavy, Lackey (and his minuscule $500,000 contract for 2015) could actually bring back more value to The Carmine Hose. Lackey has also pitched much better...
