It will be good to get a new pitching lineup. Surgery explains a lot.

I think Felix Dubrant came up from the Paw Soxs. That wasn't so great either.

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..

It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

That's a good point that we should be able to draw a a pitcher who might be able to take the mound.

I was surprised last season when we didn't take advantage of the PawSox more often. I didn't follow them as much as I have in the past, but it didn't seem like we pulled from the Minors as much as we could have.

The good thing is that can actually go out and recruit starting pitching now. Starting last year, they had Beckett, Lester, Buck, Dice-K, $17 million man Lackey and Wake as starters. Who would want to come here? Now they have two openings for starters with Lackey out, Dice-K out (forever?) and Wake gone if they don't want to bring him back. They can go out and recruit a couple starters now because they know that they have a chance to start vs. going to the bullpen for long relief or starting the season in AAA. This is a blessing.

I see the good and the bad to this one... Good, we don't have to watch Lack-ing pitch. Bad, he still gets most of his contracted paycheck, which would make buying a better pitcher not as easy to do.

A year off may not be such a bad thing, and we save money too.
