Reed has the additional motivation of now or never.
I'm basing it of of interviews like this one and my views which are the same if not harsher on aging.
Lackey plays for the Red Sox? Man, world MX champ AND MLB player? That guy IS good! (I don't follow baseball!)
Since Reeds last big year he is 2 years older and wiser (and slower?) and now has the kid as well. Time will tell. A1 is only what, 52 days away or something?
