"A major league source told ESPNChicago.com that at one point Boston proposed that the Cubs take pitcher John Lackey's contract. Lackey has three seasons remaining on a five-year, $82.5 million contract. He was 12-12 with a 6.41 ERA in 28 starts for the Red Sox in 2011."

That would be pretty hilarious if they make them take his contract on as well.

Thing is though, if Lackey gets his personal life figured out (Divorce/Alcohol addiction) he may be able to come back to some of the form he had in Anaheim.

I could see that. See him pitching like crap in Boston no matter how improved his situation has become.

He played bad for one year. Looking at what happened in the Sox dugout, I can't blame him.

If Lackey gets his mind right he can turn it around and come out better than before. I would give him one more chance in Boston. He's under contract, may as well.
