The Sporting News: Don't even think about Lackey, Houston

Dan Levy drops some reality on us today:

All signs point to New York for John Lackey, who was ostensibly the Angels ace but could be as far down as third in the Yankees rotation if he signs with the World Champs. Other teams have leaked out, including the Angels, Mets, Dodgers, Astros, Orioles, Brewers and Mariners. You can cross at least four teams off that list. Lackey will go to New York or stay in southern California.

This guy also thinks the Mets can land Halladay and Holiday.

What a difference a day makes... Yesterday we were trading for Halladay, signing Lackey and (apparently) Pettite. These writers are really grasping at straws.

Here is to hoping he is wrong, though Ed Wade has me believing that Lackey wont be coming to H-town.

Grasping at straws is an excellent way of looking at this. The Pettitte thing was so far out of left field that Carlos Lee was but a chubby speck in the background.
