Lackey is ours, and while he sucked for a long time due to injury, I doubt any Sox fans would take it all back given last year and this year (so far). Masterson was ours until he wasn’t (you were pretty good while you were here, V-Mart). He blossomed amazingly in Cleveland, and now we wonder whether maybe, maybe, maybe we should have held onto him instead of, say, the perpetually potential-filled Buchholz.
Masterson’s not doing so hot this year, though, particularly recently. So maybe the Sox can scratch their way to win #8 in a row…they’d be a mere game under .500 if they manage it!
