I'm not saying Lackey isn't a good pitcher, but he hasn't been fully healthy the last 2 years, he's 31 and when he was healthy he wasn't a dominant pitcher. He just doesn't make mistakes, which is good. But I feel we needed that dominant 3rd veteran and I also feel we overpaid for him as well. I'm not upset with us signing Lackey, he's a good pitcher. I just feel to battle the Yankees rotation we needed to make a trade, but it didn't happen.
And Cameron is just eh. We should be getting younger in the outfield, not older. Cameron is a great defensive outfielder and still a decent hitter. Now if landed Gonzalez that would be wow. With Scutaro we now have one hell of defensive and offensive infield. As far as our lineup imagine this:
Lovely lineup yeah yeah....but please believe, if the sox do land gonzo, jacoby isn't on the red sox anymore. He's trade bait now.
