In a stunning announcement pitcher John Lackey said he really did sign with the Cubs for a haircut.
“I know I said I didn’t, but in truth that’s the reason.” he said. “I mean, look at where I’ m from and the places I’ve played. Try to get a good one in Texas or, for God’s sake, St. Louis.”
Lackey spoke of admiring players like Ryne Sandberg and Bill Buckner, who he described as having “fabulous coifs”, as a youngster. ” It seemed like Chicago really had it going when it came to the salon scene.” Adding “I wanted to be a part of that.”
As far as the highly reoeated quote whuch he stated otherwise. He attributed it to having a bad hair day.
