Giants Are New Favorites To Land Jon Lester

Tired of the latest Lester rumors? Just wait a minute. This morning, word is that the Giants met late last night with one of Jon Lester's agents and have offered the lefty a seven-year deal—topping all other offers in duration. This could be the tipping point that sends Lester back to The Bay Area (albeit in different laundry). Other reports suggest that this offer is—essentially—a done deal. Look for the Red Sox to move very quickly to make alternate starting pitching plans if this deal comes to fruition.
