Lackey got paid $16.5M for 2012 and did not play.
He will play for $500K in 2015.
I do think we may restructure, but out of some threat to "hold out".
No, he will not play in 2015 for $500,000. It is not going to happen.
2015 500,000 ??
John Lackey is going to play for LESS THAN 1/30 of the amount he has made each season over the last 5 years? 1/30 amounts to LESS THAN ONE bi-weekly, in season paycheck of his $15,250,000 salary.
There is no way that he is going to play for $500,000 when rookie, replacement scubs will make just as much as him. No freaking way.
If he holds out, the Red Sox will trade him or pay him. He knows this to be true. His deal will get re-negociated. Mark it down. 100% for certain.
