Sox New Players Part 2

This is Part 2 of my series on the Boston Red Sox’s big trades in the 2009-2010 off-season. About two and half hours after the Red Sox signed Mike Cameron, they also signed John Lackey. Lackey attended Abilene High. He was great at baseball, basketball, and football. After high school he played one year at Texas University in Arlington, Texas. In 1999 he played on the Junior College World Series champion Grayson County College team in Denison, Texas, where he had a 10-3 record with a 4.23 ERA. During the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft, the Anaheim Angels selected John in the second round. Lackey spent seven great years with the Angels. His career ERA is 3.81, and his win loss for his career is 102-71. In 2002 the Angels won the World Series. In 2007 Lackey was voted into the Major League All-Star game, and later that year he was the American League ERA Champion. I think John will be a huge addition to an already stellar pitching rotation.
