He's Gone. Jon Lester Is Gone.

So, Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes are going to the A's for Yoenis Cespedes.

You have to give Ben Cherington credit.  Sure, the negotiations went to shit but in the end the Red Sox got a 28 year old outfielder with power in Yoenis Cespedes and I can't bitch and moan about that.

The silver lining in all of this is the fact that the A's won't spent the money to re-sign Lester.  They just won't.  So, the Red Sox will have one more chance to re-sign him this offseason.  And I wouldnt put it past Larry Lucchino, et al, to at least give it the old college try.
