How can the Yankees wipe the smirk off those Redsock fans' faces? Very simple...

Sign Jon Lester.

That's all. Sign him, for Godsakes.

For starters, we don't lose a too draft pick, as we would with Max Scherzer or James Shields. It's only money, which we have too much of anyway.

Secondly, Boston has been smugly telling its fan base for the last four months that it would get Lester back, and keep the players it received in the trade. That's the Boston tradition: Have it both ways. (They don't buy pennants like the Yankees do; they just are willing to spend money.) This would show they don't get everything.

Thirdly, we'd have one of the best starters in baseball, and he'd have a special reason to haunt the Redsocks: They traded his butt.

Finally, we need pitching, preferably a lefty, because the incredibly shrinking CC Sabathia isn't going to cut it.

It's simple, folks. Sign Jon Lester.

Watch those smiles disappear. SIGN JON LESTER.

You'd think this was a no-brainer, and that's where the problems begin. No-brainers are exactly what we have in the front office.

By the way, about the HoF ballot on the left of the home page...when it said "You're a Gammonite," I assumed that meant I would a) pick no Yankee (aside from Johnson and other pass-throughs who came here to collect millions and do nothing), and b) otherwise pick like a Gammonite (all Red Sox welcome). Did I misinterpret, or did everyone else misinterpret?

Yes, I know that's like "I'm not crazy, everyone else is crazy," which also happens to be true, but I was just wondering.
