Only in Boston would there be speculation about the meaning of a former Red Sox player putting his local-area house on the market. So, when Jon Lester put his Newton house up for sale, conspiracy theories abounded. Now, thanks to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford, we find out that it may be simple practicality behind the move. Lester is merely hedging his bets by listing the $1.85 million abode—in case he does sign with another club. It's not easy unloading such properties quickly in this "recovering" Massachusetts economy. Also, the lefty can just as easily take the house off the market as put it on. Lester also wanted it to be known (apparently via Bradford) that he is not be 'averse' to buying another Boston-area home if he comes back to re-don Carmine Hose. So, take off the tin-foil hats, stop listening to the moronic Coast-to-Coast AM radio show and start thinking straight!
