John Lackey’s Babe Ruth Trade Lands Pat Neshek A Big One

I’m having a really difficult time wrapping my head around this one. You see, new St. Louis Cardinal pitcher John Lackey just traded Pat Neshek a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth in return for jersey No. 41.

I mean … I feel like I’m in “The Sandlot” right now.

Wins all around, I suppose. Lackey gets the number and Neshek, a self-described “Autograph/Baseball Card Collector & eBay Sniper” gets a ball signed by Babe freaking Ruth.

Well played, Neshek. Way to land the big one.
