REPORT: Lester Likely To Pick By End Of Week

According to a report by's Sean McAdam, free agent lefty Jon Letser is likely to decide by the end of this week whether to come back to Fenway or seek "greener" pastures in Chicago or San Francisco. Most reports indicate that the Boston offer trails that of Theo Epstein by about a million bucks a year ($138M vs. $130M over six seasons), but no one knows exactly how much Boston is tugging at Lester's heartstrings. McAdam also cites the hideous possibility that The Bronx Embalmers are lurking—as is their wont—to swoop in at the last minute. That would make for a bleak Holiday Season.
