Red Sox principal owner John Henry said goodbye to longtime ace Jon Lester Thursday, giving the lefthander a hug as he departed Fenway Park after being traded to the Oakland Athletics.

Lester wasn’t alone in leaving Boston before the MLB trade deadline. Jonny Gomes, John Lackey, Stephen Drew, and Andrew Miller were all traded. Hug it out, guys.
