Rumors are fun:
I know how hard this is to believe but a well-placed source predicted that Red Sox will re-sign Lester, and may go up to 6 yrs to do so

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.
