well, as far as pulling from the PawSox, I don't think there was much there. That guy who started some very important games at the end of the season, Weiland, I think was his name, was from there..and he really wasn't very good.
As far as having to pay Lackey, don't clubs have insurance for these situations?
Finally, whether it's good or bad, it is GREAT that he will not be pitching next year, because after this year, I just can't see him getting a break from fans. I mean, clearly, they would not do Tommy John surgery if he didn't need it, which says he was pitching hurt during the season, but I don't even think it's the way he pitched that had fans so PO'd at him, I think it was his attitude, which of course wasn't helped after the fact when we learned he was part of the chicken brigade.
I'm still angry at them, especially the way they let Francona take the fall.. but I am happy about this bit of news..

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
