FN POLL: Near 60% Favor $16-$19M For Lester

Nearly six in ten voters (59%) in our latest FenwayNation Poll think the Red Sox should extend Jon Lester's contract at a yearly rate of between $16 and $19 million, Lester's current salary is $13 million. As the chart shows, three in ten readers responding to the poll take the view that Lester should be compensated at an annual rate of between $20 and $25 million. Just 1% of our sample think the lefty should get over $25 million. One voter in ten thinks Lester should be allowed to go to free agency. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
