If anyone could get me involved in a Red Sox conversation, Rick and DC and Sophie can! Yay for Wake! It has been as long as it seems for him!
The sad thing about Lackey is that he is healthy..I think they keep hoping he's gonna get his head straight and let's face it, if he does, he's the logical # 3 for the playofffs, assuming Beckett is okay and Lester gets his Mojo back. But if Buccholz comes back, all accounts are that he's going to be in the bullpen for the rest of this year, maybe that opens the door for Aceves to start?
I think it's kind of late to be trying to convert him, but they might have to if Bedard doesn't come through and Lackey continues to lack..
Can I bring something else up? HOW ABOUT JACOBY??? Is this kid not fabulous?? I'm afraid he's gonna go to free agency, though, as we never seem to do well with Boras clients who are worth signing (i.e. Damon) and only get to sign Boras clients who aren't worth signing (Drew, Dice K). The only exception I can think of to that is Varitek in 2004, but that's because he knew he wanted to be back.. Oh well, I'm enjoying him while we do have him!!

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference
