Red Sox pitcher John Lackey issued the following statement Tuesday:

"I apologize for my thoughtless choice of words that appeared in print earlier today. I meant no harm, and I am sorry to all I offended."

According to a column in Tuesday's Boston Globe, Lackey was asked whether he has a clear conscience about the goings-on in the Red Sox clubhouse during the 2011 season. Reports came out after the season of pitchers drinking beer in the clubhouse during games.

"Guys having a beer after their start has been going on for the last 100 years. This is retarded," Lackey is quoted as saying.
