Supposedly the dude is getting phsyical with some Boston docs so all things are pointing to having Johnny boy locked up for the next 5 years at $85M. 2 years ago I was at Fenway when Lackey dominated the Sox for 8 innings until Youk popped a meaningless 2-run jack in the 9th. Since then whenever someone has brought his name up, I refer to that start. Now that right there is the worst baseball logic you can possibly have, but judging by Lack's asking price, I'm not the only one who thinks the guy can toss some good cheese. As of right now, The Boston Red Sox have a killer rotation:
Uh oh. That's 6. Chances are you don't sign a guy like Lackey and expect to place him in a 6 man rotation. More things to come?? I'm thinking yes.
