John Lackey Off The Market to the Red Sox?

If all reports are true on this one, it looks like a potential big fish in the free market has been caught.
Well, assuming Boston acquires Lackey, they’ll have one of the more formidable pitching rotations in the game with Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, Daisuke Matsuzaka all in the fold.
One would assume if this deal goes down, the Yankees will do all they can to counter this move.
Business may start to pick up in the AL East.
