And, Oh Yeah, The Angels Might Want To Extend John Lackey
Though the Angels did not hold any substantive talks with Lackey this winter, a source familiar with the team's thinking but not authorized to speak about it publicly said that General Manager Tony Reagins plans to contact Lackey's agent, Steve Hilliard, to initiate negotiations soon.
"It's something I'd rather do before the season started," Lackey said. "I wouldn't want it to drag into the season. If they want to do something, I'd like to get it going quick, but it's not something I'm worried about. It's kind of on them."
