Lackey + Angels = WTF?!?!

OK, so I'm not a math major, but he equation makes sense to me. It's killing me that the Angels haven't re-signed Big John to an extension, locking him up and keeping him away from the free agent market at the end of the 2009 season.

Yes, he's made it known that he wants some run support. And no, we didn't do anything this off-season to really make him feel comfortable that he will actually win 15+ games with an ERA in the mid-3's. But if he hits the open market, he's a goner.

Either the Angels are sitting on their hands and blowing this last-chance opportunity (Lackey said he will not discuss his contract during the season) or Lackey's mind is set and, barring a large, large Angels offer, he's hitting the market anyway.

To fuel my disgust, Phil phucking Rogers had to go and name Big John the top free agent of the 2010 class.
