Ominous 'Pause Button' Hit In Jon Lester Talks
The team and ace Jon Lester have "hit the pause button" on contract negotiations—meaning the lefty could be a free agent at the end of the 2014 campaign. There was a lot of PR floating around last week (some pushed by the house organ Boston Globe) that a new extension deal was imminent—certain to happen before Opening Day. Wrong, Prvada Breath! So, now we may lose an epic post-season performer who wants to take a home-town discount. Maybe John Henry can cut back on the Liverpool jock-strap budget.
