John Lester

John Lester signed a five year/$30 million deal with a $14 million team option for the sixth year.

Assuming the Red Sox pick up Jon Lester's option in 2013, they've locked up 2 years of his free agency.

Lester is a stud and a quality number #2 on any team. If Becket returns to form this year, they are arguably the best 1/2 combo in MLB.

Now all we need to do is cross our fingers that Lowell's labrum stays intact, Drew's back doesn't act up, Ortiz's wrists/knee, etc. stay strong and Youkilis and Pedroia continue their 2008 seasons into 2009.
