The Jon Lester drama, which seems to be stretched out given that he has, reportedly, several offers in hand, is apparently about hitting a magic number. Indeed, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com was told that Lester’s are trying to get one of the teams involved to¬†increase their offer to $150 million.

He is thought to have an offer in the $130 million range from Boston, but with the Giants and Cubs serious too, it’s possible that someone will go that extra mile and make him a $150 million man.

Worth remembering that, last spring, the Red Sox could’ve had him locked up for $110 million.
