No Jon Lester Decision Before Winter Meetings?

Before Magic Johnson and his team of plutocrats weighed in with a mega-offer for Jon Lester, the lefty's decision was going to come by today—at the latest. Now, with five suitors showering offers on Lester,'s Ken Rosentthal is saying he won't pick one before the Winter Meetings—which start on Monday. Word is that the order of magnitude on salary offers will be: Dodgers (maybe $150 million), Cubs ($138 million), Red Sox ($130 million), Giants (south of $130 million), Yankees (who knows?). Nice choices!
