    If they don't extend, can he leave as a free agent after 2014?

    Thats what I was thinking. Why not work on a 4 year deal instead of just picking up a one year option. Hopefully thats in the works. Lester surprised me this year. After a poor start (after his first few games, that is) he was excellent from around Aug on to the end of the season. He figured it out.

    I'd like to see them offer Lester 4/60 or 5/65 ...  not sure what it would take, but the next season really will determine what he would be worth on the FA market.  The 5/65 would make him 35?  Clearly, there have been some would have thived in their late 30s but this is not common.

    Thanks for the love y'all! Thrilled to be back with the best organization in baseball next year and hopefully for many more years to come!

    Lester has started 194 games the last six seasons. Only 10 starters in the majors have more. Verlander tops with 202. #redsox

    Picking up option does not preclude #RedSox and Lester negotiating an extension. But team faced deadline on the option.
