Red Sox | Jon Lester optimistic

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:50:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester said that his unwillingness to discuss a new contract right now doesn't mean one won't be completed. "There is no reason not to have hope," said Lester, according to CBSBoston.com. "The talks have been amicable and everybody has been good to each other as far as being truthful, being honest and up-front with guys." Lester previously said this spring that he would consider a "hometown discount" to stay in Boston, yet Lester's camp rejected a reported four-year, $70 million offer from the Red Sox in April.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe Boston will consider trading Lester if this goes south, but it's doubtful, considering they value the southpaw and Boston technically isn't out of any playoff race just yet.
