Lackey aiming for World Series trifecta : Sports

Remember when people said Lackey would never pitch for the minimum. Good times.

Lackey, working out at a Cardinals camp for the first time Wednesday, said he would be amenable to a contract extension although he quickly added that there was “nothing close.

“If it’s something that works for both sides. I would like it,” said the 36-year-old Lackey, who very much likes what he’s seen with the Cardinals in just the two-plus months he spent with them last August through October.

“This group of guys ... this organization ... it’s a great place to be and it’s something I would entertain for sure,” Lackey said.

General manager John Mozeliak conceded that an adjustment/extension in Lackey’s contract is not a front-burner issue.
