A “well-placed source” predicts Jon Lester will re-sign with the Red Sox


Rumors are fun:

Lester has given the usual “sure, I’d consider signing back there” lip-service you hear from free agents who were traded away from their long-time team. But it is the case that his long-time team has both the money and the need for his services, so maybe we’ll see the rare back-from-where-he-started signing.
