Pitcher and 12-ounce-curl enthusiast John Lackey, who had a terrible debut with the Red Sox (and just generally a terrible career with the team so far due to an injured elbow) and who just went through a divorce, got a little bit of good news: His 2,381-square-foot penthouse at 334 Beacon Street traded for more than the $2,050,000 he bought it for in December 2010 (the latest deal closed Nov. 30). The 3-BR, 2-BA with direct elevator access (and a parking space and gobsmackingly good views) sold for $2,138,500. Interestingly, Lackey asked $2,399,000 for it—about the exact same asking price more than two years ago. Now, we'll wait and see what happens to Carl Crawford's place in Wellesley.
