According to Buster Olney, Lackey turned down an Angel's offer during the season of $72 Million.
It's unclear for how many years this offer was, but some fans have speculated a progressive annual salary, starting at 12.4M and increasing over five years. Lackey made 10M in 2009, so this would seem a descent raise and a fair offer. But Big John seems to expect more, and it's probably going to come from elsewhere.
What are your predictions where Big John ends up? The Evil Empire, the Red Sux or what?
