Jon Lester was selected to his third All-Star Game on Sunday.
WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford joined “Red Sox Gameday Live” and applauded the way Lester has handled his contract situation with the media so far, and also talked about how the increased media attention is just going to be something pending free agents have to deal with for the rest of the season.
“Cole Hamels had to deal with it in 2012,” Bradford said. “Roy Halladay stood in front of his locker, had to do it the same year. It’s something you have to deal with during the All-Star break, but (Lester) is comfortable doing that because he’s handled it so well.”
