Lester and Lackey Depart

Lester and Gomes to the A’s for Cespedes.  Lackey to the Cards for Craig and Kelly.  Man, 4/5 of last year’s rotation is gone (Doubront in a minor deal to the cubs earlier, Peavy, Lester, Lackey)…the one remaining is the ever-enigmatic Buchholz.  Yikes.  Wonder if any supplementary moves are coming now…

  • So the Red Sox want to compete again in 2015. Who’ll be in the rotation then? Of course, they can try to re-sign Lester, but I doubt that’s going to happen. They should have have extended him in the off-season. Now they might go for Scherzer who’ll be more expensive. Hopefully Cespedes will provide some pop in the outfield.
    Also hate to see Miller go.

  • All these departures, such a whirlwind. Drew to the Yankees for the first RIVALRY trade since ’97. Wow. Interesting Koji isn’t gone. They think the QO will stick with him given age, maybe?
