Peter Gammons Says Getting John Lackey Turned Around Is Vital for Red Sox in Second Half


  John Lackey struggled again against the Blue Jays on Monday, surrendering seven runs over just 2 1/3 innings. It may have been the worst start of his career, but NESN's Peter Gammons thinks Lackey is still a key component of the Red Sox' future.

Following the Sox' 9-7 loss to Toronto, Gammons stressed how important it is that the Sox get Lackey turned around.

Tom Caron also noted that Lackey isn't one to complain about an ailing elbow, so it's certainly in the Red Sox' hands to determine if there is something medically wrong with the struggling right-hander.

To hear what else Gammons and Caron had to say, as well as who David Ortiz selected to replace Mark Teixeira in the Home Run Derby, check out the video above from NESN Daily.
