    No, but Cubs have the $$$ and remember it was Epstein and company that drafted Lester. Their farm system is stacked and he would be the guy to build around

    even if they did want him why would they feel the need to give up anything never mind all that

    Why would the Cubs who are last in the NL and no shot at anything trade for Lester as a rental when they can and probably bid on him this November and only lose a draft pick? What do they gain? 

    This is the one of the most insane threads I've ever seen.

    And he mentioned Alcantara who is now starting and Solar, who will probably be in the OF by September 1.

    Sox can build around him, if you want build around. Only big score for top prospects would be contender who needs pitching to help close the deal,  and has the bucks to sign him for a few years.

    Why wouldn't Theo just wait after the season and offer Lester irresistible contract and not give up single prospect.

    Bingo! Plus they wont lose a 1st round pick either. Start really building a team with Lester. Plus they will have about 30 million dollars coming off the books, they are ready to jump back into FA, again.

    I think prospects swap between the Sox and the Cubs makes more sense.  We have plenty of pitching and the Cubs have plenty of power bats.  Allen Webster for Jorge Soler?

    Theo has been working 3 years, in Drafting, International Drafting and Trades, to really build up his Farm. One of the best too. He's the last guy you want to talk to about getting any of his Prospects. Dont be surprised if he tries to dump more this week, to see if he can get more into his Farm.


    Soler signed a 9 year Major League Contract. that how much Theo values him.

    Re: if We Going to Trade Lester, Dream Team Is The Cubs

    I think Sox players were very vocal and wanted Napoli back with the team this past off-season and almost forced FO to sign Napoli to 2 yr deal.  I understand Lester's contract would be very different from Naps but I'm little bit surprised that players are somewhat quiet.  I know few players have been interviewed and they publicly said Lester will be missed and he's a keeper all that.  But I'm not hearing players are pushing FO to get the deal done.  Players know if Lester hits the open market, it would be a lot tougher to bring him back than it was for Napoli.  Maybe they are but we just don't hear them on the news?

    No way would Cubs do that. Look at his numbers, age. If you said Webster and Betts, I'd do it.

    Soler for Ranaudo and Owens....maybe. Cubs are loaded for the infield, in fact would be surprised if they make a move for Stanton.

    Not to pile on, but Lester was drafted when Duquette was GM.

    Theo didn't rebuild the farm system to trade away 2 or 3 of their top prospects for a 30 year old pitcher who will command over 100 million and add him to a bad team.

    How does adding Jon Lester to the Cubs at the expense of top prospects make sense for them?

    Soler made his debut in 7-19-12 Rookie League, he's in Triple AAA today. Jumped 5 levels in 2 years, he must be doing something right.


    Hit a HR yesterday for Triple AAA.

    Why would he get hammered there? Have you ever been there? In April, May and throughout summer, there are a significant number of games where the wind blows in from the lake where it's almost impossible to hit one out.
