POLL: More Than Three-Quarters Want Lester

Maybe it was last night's 3-hit, complete-game shutout. Anyway, support for the idea of the Red Sox going after former ace Jon Lester in the off-season jumped to more than three in four voters in our latest FenwayNation Poll. As the chart shows, fully 76% now want Boston to pursue Lester, followed distantly by the desire to go after Johnny Cueto (13%). Just 7% want Cole Hamels to be the team's chief starting pitcher target, with 3% naming James Shields. A scant 1% mention a pitcher not on our list of options. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
