According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox have let it be known that they would trade bothJon Lester and John Lackey—if they got an appropriate return back in players and prospects. If true, this would represent the clearest "white flag" yet in this horrific year. Arguably, Lester and Lackey have been the two most effective starters for The Carmine Hose over the last year and a half—raising the question of: 'just who would anchor the staff?' if both of these veterans leave. Curiouser and curiouser!
