Is John Lackey the ace of the Cardinals? 

     In a season where their pitching has been the constant, Cardinals’ righty John Lackey has certainly not been an exception. Game-by-game, day-in and day-out, the St. Louis pitchers give the team a chance to win, and again, Lackey is no omission. Clearly the veteran, but maybe the most polished of the team’s starters, Mr. Lackey has meant wonders to a staff that has endowed...

Cardinals feed off Lackey's intensity on the mound

John Lackey wasn't one of the St. Louis Cardinals' six All-Stars but his recent performances have been worthy of that status. Lackey looks to continue his run of outstanding outings Saturday night when the Cardinals face the New York Mets.

John Lackey Trade Revisited: Can Red Sox Salvage 2014 Deadline Deal?

Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington might want a mulligan on the John Lackey trade. It looks really, really bad now that Lackey is pitching well for the St. Louis Cardinals while both Joe Kelly and Allen Craig reside at Triple-A Pawtucket following unimpressive stints in Boston. But should the deal already be written off as a total disaster for the Red Sox? It’s fair...
