Analyst: Cubs feel Jon Lester might be headed back to Red Sox
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While there are reportedly six teams interested in signing free agent starting pitcher Jon Lester, one of those teams -- the Cubs -- believe Lester could be returning to Boston, baseball analyst Peter Gammons said during an interview with WEEI on Tuesday.

Lester is meeting with the Cubs on Tuesday and reportedly set to meet with the Braves on Thursday.

"I think the one thing -- obviously the Cubs are going to make every play -- I get the feeling the Cubs think he’s going to go back to Boston," Gammons said. "I think it’s very smart for Lester and his agents to hold for another week. I think there is a feeling it is going to go past Thanksgiving, maybe into the first week into December and the hope is that the Yankees look at that starting rotation and they think -- I mean how do they know [Masahiro] Tanaka, [Michael] Pineda and [Ivan] Nova are going to be healthy next year and they start thinking about, 'OK, we have great bullpen, but…'

"That is Red Sox ownership’s worst nightmare — the Yankees and Theo Epstein negotiating against them. But, after spring training when ACES told them [they would see what the market bears], they are finding out the market is going to bare more than they ever imagined."
