John Lackey Divorce

Rough year for Red Sox pitcher John Lackey isn’t getting any better with the team fighting to stay ahead in the wild-card race.


Pennant races are heating up. Where is your team in the playoff chase?

After helping the Red Sox knock off the Yankees 7-4 in 14 innings Sunday in Game 2 of a doubleheader to keep their wild-card lead at one game, Lackey came into his postgame news conference angry.

“Let me tell you the truth,” Lackey said. “Thirty minutes before the game, I got a text message on my cellphone from one of you . . . somebody in the media, talking about personal stuff. And I shouldn’t even be standing up here having to deal with this.

“I’m sitting here listening to music. I don’t know who got my phone number, but that’s over the line.”

Early Monday morning, gossip website TMZ reported that Lackey had filed for divorce from his wife, Krista, who is currently battling breast cancer.

The couple married in 2008 and, according to TMZ, have a prenuptial agreement. The website reported that the petition was filed Aug. 30 in Texas and states “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”

Asked if the text message was a distraction, Lackey said, “This is unbelievable I’ve got to deal with this.”

UHHH Doesn’t John Lackey know by now the Boston Sports Media does not report on personal issues unless they were brought up this was a story originally revealed by the celebrity stalkers at TMZ. What do you think about this?
