Lester Tops MLB Free Agent 'Confidence' List

In a poll of writers, Jon Lester is ranked number one in the first annual Free Agent Confidence Rankings. Lester's age (30), left-handedness, durability and playoff credentials put him ahead of fellow 30-year old Max Scherzer. Another former Carmine Hoser, Andrew Miller, finished third in the confidence rankings, with ex-Sox farmhand Hanley Ramirez is the #20 spot. This week could be crucial in deciding whether Lester goes to the Cubbies (where he is having meetings) and his Olde Towne Team.
