  6. John Lackey was not impressed by Caleb Joseph’s home run on Saturday

    Aug 10, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT

    John Lackey

    John Lackey called Caleb Joseph’s home run on Saturday — Joseph’s fifth consecutive game with a home run — a “Baltimore home run”, presumably slighting Joseph’s blast because Camden Yards is friendlier to hitters than to pitchers.

  7. Caleb Joseph has homered in five consecutive games

    Aug 9, 2014, 7:46 PM EDT

    Caleb Joseph

    Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph has homered in five consecutive games. If he does it again tomorrow, he’ll tie the major league record.

    Indians celebration

    The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

    The Brewers have scratched rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson from Saturday’s start, but it mostly looks like a convenient excuse to manipulate their rotation this weekend.

    Aug 1, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Carlos Martinez is no longer needed in St. Louis’ rotation following trades for Justin Masterson and John Lackey, but rather than shifting him back to the bullpen the Cardinals have decided to send the 22-year-old right-hander to Triple-A.

  14. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington begins second roster overhaul

    Aug 1, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Not satisfied with adding Justin Masterson to the rotation yesterday, the Cardinals have added another veteran starter by acquiring John Lackey from the Red Sox. And, much like Boston’s deal to get Yoenis Cespedes from Oakland for Jon Lester, the Red Sox have prioritized the present by getting veterans Allen Craig and Joe Kelly in exchange.

  18. The Lester trade is a win-win

    Jul 31, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    The Sox did not get hosed here. Don’t believe that for a second.

    From FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi comes word that the Marlins and White Sox “have discussed a possible trade” involving left-handed starter John Danks.

  21. UPDATE: OK, maybe the Marlins aren’t going to trade for John Lackey.

    A few minutes ago we thought this man could soon be a Fish. Now it seems unlikely. HAPPY TRADE DEADLINE!

  22. There’s a “very good chance” the Red Sox trade Lackey and Lester

    Jul 30, 2014, 12:27 PM EDT

    A major reshaping of the Red Sox rotation could be afoot.

  23. David Ortiz is not pleased that his name got pulled into the John Lackey-Nelson Cruz thing

    Jul 9, 2014, 9:40 AM EDT

    David Ortiz Getty

    And he’s right to not be pleased. Even if he (and everyone else in this littler drama) is being pretty lame.
