John Lackey P Boston Red Sox

John Lackey, an All Star in 2007 after leading the AL in ERA has taken a considerable downward spiral since that year. Signed to a 5 year, over $82 million dollar deal in 2009, prior to going 14-11 in his first season with the Red Sox, Lackey has been rocked to the tune of a 7.34 ERA while surrounded with rumors he will need Tommy Johns surgery.

So far Lackey has been paid over $20 million, and is owed over $15 million this season, and the following three seasons. Having an enormous payroll in the MLB can apparently lead to some buyers remorse.
