Sox Are Reportedly Interested In Signing John Lackey

Beckett And Lackey
Wait a second! According to's Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox are among six MLB teams that have "checked in" on John Lackey. As you may recall, Lackey had one his best seasons last year for the Cardinals—pitching on the $507, 500 contract arranged by Boston. The  free-agent posted a 13-10 record in 2015—with a stellar 2.77 ERA. The 37-year old workhorse started 33 games—most in the National League. So, is it worth him re-joining The Carmine Hose? While the chicken and beer budget has been slashed since he left, we should not forget how brilliantly he pitched for us in the 2013 post-season. Stay tuned—you never know with this team!
