Jon Lester Poised for Bounce-Back Year Under John Farrell, Which Makes a Trade Hard to Envision (Video)

Red Sox Nation was thrown a major curveball early this week when a report surfaced stating that the Royals were interested in Jon Lester and could be willing to deal their top prospect in exchange for the left-hander.

Trading Lester is something that most Sox fans probably never envisioned, and likely still don’t envision, but the thought of acquiring what many scouts tab as a potential superstar in Wil Myers is definitely intriguing. However, such a move would put the Red Sox’ rotation in a serious bind, and as The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham points out, it probably doesn’t make much sense when you consider Myers has no big league experience.

Abraham dropped by NESN Daily to discuss the rumored Lester deal, as well as whether Mike Napoli would be a good fit in Boston and if the Sox should pursue Josh Hamilton. Check it all out in the video above.
