REPORT: Cards May Still Be In On Jon Lester

Despite acquiring Justin Masterson, is reporting that the Cardinals may still pursue Jon Lester. The word is that any such deal for Lester would need to include an "elite" prospect and current RedBird starter Shelby Miller. The 23-year old Miller has been mediocre at best this season (7-8, 4.20 ERA in 20 starts)—after a stellar 2013 (15-9, 3.06 ERA in 31 starts). He was not on the Cardinals World Series roster when they faced the Red Sox last year.
