Anyone heard what happened to John Lackey's start, today? He last pitched on 9/6, and Yahoo! had him listed to start today. Until yesterday. Now news outlets think Jered Weaver is starting this evening, and Saunders tomorrow. Anyone know what happened to Lackey? Is he getting skipped this week? I'm starting to feel like papasmurf.

Only thing I can think of is with them clinching they're giving Lackey some rest.

Ha! Classic. That thought occurred to me, too. Well, if that really is the case, maybe I should have posted in the "Boooooo" thread.

Just in from Rotowire:
Lackey is not scheduled to start in the Angels' upcoming four-game series against the Mariners.

Lackey made his last start on September 6, but it looks like the Angels will skip his turn in the rotation to give him some rest. Fantasy owners who are approaching their league's playoffs should plan ahead accordingly.

Says he should make his next start next Tuesday, giving him 9 days off between starts. What do we do Grey!

You have to start Lackey. He's not a guy you can bench.

oh yeah i know to start him, but is his value for that one game worth it for the rest of the year and in H2H playoffs?

Oh, then it depends on who your options are. So, who are your options?

Tough loss for those counting on his start vs Seattle, this week, in h2h playoffs.

Next week it looks like Lackey might get 2 starts.
