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.
