    Lackey is useless

    Almost every inning is an experience with Lackey.  No out hits, BB, a throwing error, PB?  You name it and this guy does it.  Hopefully the Sox rally as they usully need to do with John on the mound but he is pathetic to watch.  Anyone who wants to make an excuse for John go right ahead but he may be one of our worst SP's ever.

    But the ball came out of his hand good.

    It's like watching Matt Clement pitch again.  He gets in trouble and either gets lucky or completely falls apart at the seams.  No place for a guy like this in the AL East or PS.

    You name it?  You named PB.  SO nope, he doesn't do it all.  He's just not that good, and he's not gonna get any better.   It was a bad signing, we got to get over it, and deal him somehow, eat a lot of the salary,or whatever.

    Theo really misjudged Lackeys talent and what contribution he might bring to our rotation.  John going into his third year next season, if this continues he won't see the end of his contract in Boston.

    Funny cantime. Truth be told, I think the Sox messed up Dice-k by trying to control how he pitched. They should have just let him stick to his routine because it worked for him.

    There's a huge difference.  DiceK has two World Classic titles under his belt that directly contributed, imo, to his meltdown with this team.

    Lackey just stopped winning.  Took the money, split LA, and pretty much now just occupies air space.

    I think that Lackey is a spy sent by the Angels as payback for the 2004, 2007 and 2008 playoffs.

    he was a way to save money instead of going after a good pitcher in my mind. then they also gave him too much for what he was.
    we have no one to count on after bedard in the playoffs.
    we have no reliable middle relief.
    all this was obvious to me going into the season.theo and management could have done better with middle relief prior to the season.
     we have great hitting, but that alone wont guarantee a championship.
    texas and ny have equal or better chance and philly would be heavily favored with their rotation of #1's

    Lol.  Maybe he's stilll under contract with them and his work with the Sox is just gravy.  Heck of a pension plan.

    It's obviously very difficult for fans when they come to realize that their team has misjudged level of talent and locked in seemingly expensive players long term whom they believe cannot and will not ever contribute anything of value.   The situation is complicated by the reality that this type of player is essentially untradeable.  Reality bites and barring occasional visits to the phantom or real DL, John Lackey will make about 90 more starts with the Red Sox and likely be remembered as a mediocre starting pitcher based on his contract.  At this stage of his career, it is somewhat unlikely that he will "figure it out" or reinvent himself.   That unto itself does not mean that the team will not enjoy success, but it does certainly make the road much more challenging than it should have been if only......The local media will obviously try to articulate or sell the proverbial silver lining on behalf of management and ownership, but at the end of the day fans are often frustrated, disappointed and angry.

      Statistically they are the same pitcher which is why they are being paid the same money.   The current Red Sox management team places a high value on the relevance of numbers.

    Beckett has a career ERA of about 0.25 better, a WHIP about .100 better and a winning% about .030 better. He pitched in a hitter's park vs a pitcher's park for Lackey. he faced tougher offensive opps. He has had better playoff success. He is paid only slightly more.

    “They’ve got a good lineup, man, they’re tough,” Lackey said. “They definitely worked me, got my pitch count up quite a bit there in the sixth inning. They got enough of hits to get me out of there, and it just didn’t go real good after that.”

    Lackey is not going anywhere.    He's signed through the 2014 season.

    To be somewhat fair, this was his first "awful" game since July 4th.  That's not saying every single start since then has been good but they all haven't been terrible.

    What kills me is that they spent bad money b4 the 2010 season with Lackey at 85 million and Cameronn at 13 million. It would have been smarter tp get a Sabathia and bite the bullet on him and go the extra money instead of wasting 98 million on these two finished up players.

    RS pitching ineptness will be their downfall in the playoffs this year.  The boy GM has made too many bad decisions.  Some might consider the Yankees and Rangers to be the two most important teams on the RS must win list.  Red Sox 2, Yankees & Rangers 4.  They have only 4 bonified can-probably-count-on pitchers on that staff (Beckett, Lester, Bard & Papelbon) and that's pathetic!

    Trade Lackey for a crate of beer cups . . . about all we could get for him. Many never liked this signing, and time just relentlessly proves those instincts.
