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 Royals were said to be interested in a deal for both Lackey andAndrew Miller. Those talks were supposed to have cooled, but may now have been rekindled. Frankly, at this point, almost anything could or could not happen.
