Lackey Wants Trade; Royals And Marlins Spots?

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 and Andrew 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.
