Red Sox work on Lackey deal

Posted on: December 14, 2009 3:27 pm
 
John Lackey appears headed for the Red Sox on a deal that would pay him about $85 million for five years, CBSSports.com has confirmed.

Lackey is having a physical exam with the Red Sox, as first reported by Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse.

Signing Lackey would open up plenty of other options for the Red Sox, who as recently as last week had been focused more on outfielders Jason Bay and Matt Holliday. The Sox could still sign a free-agent outfielder, but a Lackey signing could also open up the possibility of including Clay Buchholz in a trade for a big bat like San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez.

Your welcome, but how can mets and red sox fans be anything but negative as our teams deteriorate and the yanks and phils keep getting stronger and stronger and will have a chokehold on the AL/NL for years to come. How many yank WS wins can we tolerate while our inept management continue to complete these ridiculous deals.

I share your dislike for the yankees, however, I think that the Lackey deal is a big mistake. Similar to the deals that my team, the mets have done over the last three years, it looks like the sox overpaid for an injury prone pitcher in a desperation move to try and keep up with the yanks. With most of the power gone from the sox lineup and big poopi fading fast, it is unlikely the sox will be able to compete any time soon. I think it is going to be a long season next year trying to chase you know who in vain.

I agree completely.
There are three ways to build a team:  Through the minors/drafting, trades, free agency.  You can not blame the Yankee's, Sox and other "haves" for taking advantage of all possible team building opportunities available.  Quite honestly they have an obligation to their fans to do so.  
Another point that should be made is that the Yankees and the Sox (The two teams that seem to draw everyone's ire) make a lot of money, for sure, but they also poor a lot of that money back into their teams.  That can not be said for a number of teams around major league baseball who take profit sharing dollars and use them for other things rather than the product on the field.  
So unless MLB makes changes to the current system (Salary cap and basement) you can not or should not blame teams that are aggressive in their attempts to put a winning team on the field.
