Boston Dirt Dogs -- Krista Lackey, Welcome to Boston
(Jim Davis / Globe Staff)

Welcome to Boston, Krista Lackey
(And Take That, Leigh Teixeira)

Oh, And Introducing John Lackey
Epstein on Lackey Signing, John, Not Krista
Did We Mention Krista Lackey?

"I was a Red Sox fan, not a diehard, but I was a fan. Now it's different. But I love Boston and always have. It's a great city... It'll all came together in a few days, it was a surprise. But it'll be great to be closer to my friends and family. My college roommates all live in the area. It's like coming home." -- Red Sox wife extraordinaire Krista Lackey

"Thanks, Krista." -- Red Sox GM Theo Epstein on Krista, a Maine native and University of New Hampshire graduate, who influenced John's decision to come to Boston (and maybe Theo's decision to bring John to Boston)
