In response to steven11's comment:
Maybe not his words but it is something the sox need to consider.
They absolutely do not need to "consider" this completely fabricated threat. The blog cited by ADG says, "reports are coming out that Lackey would consider retiring instead of coming back next year and playing for the minimum," and then cites no sources:
In response to ADG's comment:
Here's one link:
If he is, then maybe he should first pay back the $16.5M he made when he was injured. And if this is true, didn't he know this when he signed the contract?
What reports? Who says? This is utter bullcr@p.
First of all, there is no credible source that this is at all on Lackey's mind. This is pure flaming by a troll.
Second of all, even if the threat were real, so what? If he retires and skips 2015, the Sox just loose out on a draft pick or a trade opportunity. This hardly affects the Sox at all. It would make Lackey a dirtbag; but really the bottom line for the Sox is no big deal.
In any case, I don't believe this bull. Provide credible sources. Until then, the OP is just a troll flaming the forum and should be banned, no warning given.
