John Lackey: ‘Winning Is the Biggest Thing For Me’

John Lackey: 'Winning Is the Biggest Thing For Me' Last year, the Red Sox were blessed with two aces in Jon Lester and Josh Beckett. In 2010, the local nine will have another ace in their deep rotation in newcomer John Lackey.

Lackey was introduced to the Boston media as the latest member of  Theo Epstein‘s ensemble on Wednesday afternoon at Fenway Park, but the former Halos hurler’s interest in Boston came as a bit of a surprise to the Red Sox boss.

“He’s a big game pitcher, top of the rotation guy, and he’s a really tough competitor,” Epstein said. “We never really thought he’d be interested in Boston.”

Below is Lackey’s introduction to Red Sox Nation.
