    Lackey is a Fraud, Revisited

    I started the initial thread back in April and everyone ripped me because he had a couple of good starts. Well? What do you think of this $16M per year fraud now?
    I'd like someone else to tell me what other pitcher is as overpaid as he is.

    I HAVE OFTEN SAID ON THIS FORUM THAT LACKEY HAS A RAG ARM.
    AND THAT HIS BEST YEARS WERE WITH THE ANGELS AND THAT IS
    ALL HISTORY. NO ONE RESPONDS , OF COURSE, BECAUSE MOST OF
    THE POSTERS ON THIS FORUM ARE OF THE "SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO
    EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL" MINDSET WHEN IT COMES TO FRANCONA &
    AND EPSTEIN. WELL, AFTER WE LOSE 2/3 TO THE YANKS THIS
    WEEKEND, THEY'LL GET A DOSE OF REALITY WHEN WE END UP
    8 GAMES OUT IN THE L COLUMN. I JUST CAN'T SEE STARTING
    LACKEY EVERY 5 DAYS ANY MORE. I'D RATHER SEE BOWDEN OR
    DOUBRONT . HECK...THEY COULDN'TBE MUCH WORSE, AND THERE
    IS LESS WEAR ON THEIR ARMS. GEOFF ZAUN SAID IT BEST ON
    WED. NITE, MAY 11 WHEN HE QUOTED MEMBERS OF THE ANGELS
    WHO SAID THAT LACKEY HAD LOST IT ON HIS CURVE AS
    COMPARED TO WHEN HE WAS IN HIS PRIME 2002-2006 OR 7.
    JUST LOOK AT THE TV SCREEN, AND YOUR EYES WILL TELL YOU
    WHAT YOU ARE SEEING WITH LACKEY. IT WAS A POOR JUDGEMENT
    ON THEO'S PART AND NOW IT WILL SINK THE SOX.

    Really?
    Zambrano 38-20  ERA about 3.70 since he signed
    Santana   40-25  ERA about 2.70 since he sgined

    Lackey so far: 16-16  ERA  5.16

    I think your only argument is Zito. Schmidt is out of baseball, and under no circumstance should a starter have an ERA over 8. That is downright pitiful, so you do your research first.

    A fraud implies Lackey was somehow pulling the wool over peoples' eyes.  I can say many not-so-nice things about the big man, but can't call him a fraud.  His record, his lack of any nasty pitches and small modicum of control were out there for everyone to see.

    i agree; SLACKEY, although a terrible starting pitcher, is not a FRAUD.
    he is what he is.
    THEO, on the other hand, has been parading around like he's a real GM;
    THEO is the FRAUD.

    The degree or state of the cancer is not going to be known by the public. If it's a family crisis, Lackey should be granted a leave of absence. Using that as an over a year long excuse is not professional. If his mind leaves him unable to be a professional performer, he needs to be given a medical leave of absence.

    Spaceman says, "...his lack of any nasty pitches.."

    Which explains why he is called Lackey.

    He doesn't lack  money, though.

    Impossible for him to be a fraud.  His body of work has been well known by everyone.  This is on Theo, not Lackey.
