So the cream of the crop of pitchers is officially off the market.
John Lackey has agreed to a five-year deal with the Boston Red Sox for $85 million.
Well good the Sox and all the Boston fans that are skipping down Yawkey Way.
Newsflash! You still have to beat the Yankees with C.C. Sabathia and AJ Burnett.
You have John Lackey and Mr. Cranky-back Josh Beckett. Seriously? Don’t count your eggs before they are hatched.
Did I mention Lackey has been having some health issues since 2007? Yeah! Good luck with that. Not worth the $85 million.
