Lester Lester Lester… Red Sox GM says Et Tu Lester?

Red Sox who made huge splash prior to the Winter meetings in San Diego with Ramirez and Sandoval are trying to erase the hurt from being left at the altar by Jon Lester. Everything really pointed to Lester going back to Boston, hell from the things I read Chicago wasn’t really thought as a major contender. I know all my friends that are Boston fans not only wanted him back but thought he would resign with them. Only those in the front office know what actually went down when he was traded to the A’s (well his doppelganger in my opinion) but something must have left a bad taste in his mouth.

After Lester said thanks but no thanks to Boston they must have felt like a half frozen gerbil in Richard Geers butt. Very uncomfortable, slightly scared, maybe a little intrigued on what happens next, but definitely wondering how expensive this was going to be down the road. So much so that the guy they traded for Lester from the A’s last year Cespedes is no longer a Primary Colored Foot Clothing. The pain of seeing Cespedes must have been so great that they no longer could look him in the face. I actually saw a report that Hanley Ramirez (just acquired) will be their left fielder now (shrug).

What did they get for Cespedes? Well duh the pitcher they didn’t get when Lester showed them the door. Rick Porcello from Detroit. Don’t get me wrong Porcello is no slouch and only nominally less of a talent then Lester but again to Red Sox nation he isnt Lester and that, that hurts right here (I’m pointing at my heart if you didn’t realize it).

“Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?”
