John Lackey, who is scheduled to start for the Red Sox against his old team, the Angels, Wednesday at Fenway Park, met with the media Tuesday afternoon. Although there were frew revelatory comments from the starter, Lackey did offer some interesting insight when asked about the Angels propensity to letting free agents walk after their contracts expire. "It is different," Lackey told the Orange County Register.  "The way they preach the team game and the way you're supposed to give it up for the team -- that's a little suspect.
"You're supposed to give it up for the team. Then when it comes time, they might not give it up for you. ... I totally knew what the situation was (when he reached free agency)."
Lackey signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal with the Red Sox last offseason.
