Apparently the $30 million+ that John Lackey has coming his way over the next two years just isn’t enough. He’s trying to unload this insane Newport Beach, California mansion for $10 million. Unlike the last two years of Lackey’s career, this house is no laughing matter. Complete with a private putting green and pool with ocean views, Lackey’s pad is truly a place where you can kick back and get away from it all…if you can take on it’s hefty sticker price. Lackey bought the house back in 2010 for $8.4 million only months after signing a 5-year contract with the Red Sox. Why drop $8.4 million on a house that is 3,000 miles away from Boston? A very curious move by Lackey indeed. According to Realtor: The interior features custom travertine flooring, custom cedar closets and an interior courtyard, while amenities include iPad controlled audio-video systems, an entertainer’s bar and a theater room. You had us sold with the travertine flooring.
