"Growing Expectation" Of Lester Trade To LAD

According to's Buster Olney, there is a "growing expectation" that Jon Lester will be traded by the Red Sox before the deadline—most likely to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Whether the return to Boston is in the form of a package including 30-year old Matt Kemp (minus some of his humongous contract obligations) or just prospects—most likely stud center fielder Joc Pederson, remains to be seen. This could be even faster moving than we expected, so keep an ear to the ground!
