Report: Lackey likely gone as well
Whelp, hold on to your butts folks. Lester is most likely gone by the time I post this, Doubront is gone, and now amid rumors that Lackey would possibly be traded, it looks like it's as sure as Lester being gone.
Spoke to a source within the Red Sox: "Lackey is gone. He asked to be traded."— Jared Carrabis (@Jared_Carrabis) July 30, 2014
Red Sox have had discussions with Marlins regarding Jon Lester in addition to John Lackey, source says. @FOXSports1— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 30, 2014
I've heard/seen the Sox want two elite prospects and a Major Leaguer for Lester, and Lackey, I don't know. This is a pipe dream but maybe we could get Stanton from Miami for one of these guys. Then re-sign Lester next year. Talk about a hole-in-one.
