Empire Has 'No Plans' To Go After Jon Lester

According to a report in The New York Daily News, the Yankees have "no plans to pursue" free-agent Jon Lester—or Pablo Sandoval or Max Scherzer or James Shields. Instead, The Bronx Embalmers are looking to bring back Brandon McCarthy and Chase Headley. The focus on Headley would suggest that The Fraudulent One is being penciled in as the team's DH. In any event, the elimination of The Pinstriped Posers as pursuers of Lester makes it a little easier for the Red Sox to try to lure him back to Fenway.
