The Over The Monster Podcast, Episode 114: Pandacast

The Red Sox are panda hunt'n. Also there's Jon Lester. Who are they going to get? Who should they get? We talk about these things and also others! The off-season has begun in ernest. The Red Sox are at the forefront of many a rumor, primarily the one about bringing back their former ace starter Jon Lester. The Red Sox do need starters after all, and humorously, they just traded a guy that they'd kinda like to have back. Let's not talk about the trade though, as that's old and painful news. No, this is a new season, the not-season as it were, and it's the time when teams like the Red Sox can...

Could Russell Martin cost the Red Sox Jon Lester?

Russell Martin and Jon Lester don't have much in common. So why does Buster Olney say the former's signing with Toronto could keep the latter from signing in Boston. When it comes to six degrees of separation, Jon Lester and Russell Martin are not so far apart as, say, Ken Ryan and Brandon Workman, but when Russell Martin signed on with the Blue Jays earlier this week, Red Sox fans weren't exactly trying to figure out what it meant for the lefty ace's market. Well, if you believe Buster Olney, it turns out it could actually mean quite a lot, mostly because of what it meant for the Chicago...

Report: Sox offer to Lester in $110-120M range

The Red Sox’s offer to Jon Lester is reportedly in the range of $110-120M (presumably over six years), but that’s more likely to be a new starting point in the Lester negotiations rather than something that their former ace would accept. Lester, who has already heard pitches from the Red Sox and Cubs, is meeting with the Braves on Thursday and could visit others as well (Cardinals? Blue Jays? Yankees?), so it’s unlikely that Boston’s offer would be the best one on the table.

Oops! Lester's Newton House Sells For $1.85M

Just in case you weren't depressed enough over the news about Boston's second low-ball offer to Jon Lester, more disturbing news has arisen. According to The Los Angeles Times, Lester sold his Newton home for $1.85 million yesterday. The Colonial—which is situated on the Charles River—is a 3,300 square foot manse that has its own wine cellar. The Lesters just recently bought a 4,500 square foot home in the Atlanta area. Not good news.

Will Jon Lester Accept 'LowBall II' From Sox?

Will Jon Lester Accept 'LowBall II' From Sox?

Multiple media reports indicate that the Red Sox have offered Jon Lester six years and between $110 and $120 million. That works out to between $18.3 million and $20 million per year for the lefty ace. Most observers of the free agent market (including Lester's ex-teammate Curt Schilling) have pegged Lester's worth at around $140-$150 million. Moreover, there are new reports that The Evil Ones are poised to offer Lester eight years and $200 million—$25 million a year, with a 4-year opt-out. So, the big question is will Lester accept John Henry's "LowBall II' offer? Stay tuned.

Devil in the details: Contract possibilities for Jon Lester and the Red Sox

The Red Sox have made no secret of their desire to make a push for Jon Lester, a notion that has gained further credence with the reports (the first one of which came from ESPNBoston.com) that the team has made an offer to the left-hander. But, of course, it is one thing to make an […]

Agent: ‘Red Sox extended great respect to Jon [Lester]‘

While it is known the Red Sox ownership group extended an offer to Jon Lester during their meeting earlier this week, and that Lester also met with the Cubs Tuesday while planning on getting together with Atlanta Thursday, little is known about the particulars of the Sox negotiations with the lefty. One of Lester’s agents, […]

Red Sox made 'aggressive' offer to Jon Lester

First we learned the Sox made an offer, and now we've got some idea of what it might look like. Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that the Red Sox had made an offer to Jon Lester, one he wasn't expected to make a quick decision on. It was good news to hear that Boston was keeping its in-season word by making an effort to bring Lester back to the team that drafted and developed him, but no word was given as to what the deal might look like. CSNNE's Sean McAdam has brought a measure of clarity to the situation, however, as he's reporting that the offer to Lester was an "aggressive"...
