Not the sort of thing team brass typically says.

Understandable, but it would be pretty darn surprising if he were dealt.
Jul 9, 2014, 9:40 AM EDT
And he’s right to not be pleased. Even if he (and everyone else in this littler drama) is being pretty lame.

A frustrated John Lackey directed his anger toward Nelson Cruz and his 2013 PED suspension after the Red Sox fell back to nine games under .500 in the second half of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Orioles. Key word in this post: convenient.

Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu entered play Tuesday with 22 home runs — third in MLB behind Edwin Encarnacion (24) of the Blue Jays and Nelson Cruz (23) of the Orioles. But the sensational rookie slugger doesn’t have any desire to strut his stuff in the 2014 Home Run Derby at Target Field.

When asked why he was held out of tonight’s starting lineup against the White Sox, Orioles slugger Chris Davis told reporters that it was “probably because I’ve been sucking lately.” He has to feel a little bit better about himself right now.
