Lackey Likely To Start World Series Game Two

It's not official yet, but all signs point to John Lackey—and not Clay Buchholz—starting Game Two of the World Series on Thursday night. Given the uneven performances of Buchholz in the postseason, Lackey would be the far more logical choice to follow Jon Lester. In this scenario, Buchholz would start Game Three at Busch Stadium on Saturday and Jake Peavy would take the hill in Game Four on Sunday.
