Lester To Cubs For $155 Million [VIDEO]
And the winner is...the Chicago Cubs! Free agent Jon Lester chose the Cubs, their 6-year / $155 million dollar deal that includes a seventh year vesting option.
The Red Sox final best offer was apparently 6 years and $135 million.
It means Lester joins up with former Sox GM Theo Epstein and the new manager of the Cubbies, Joe Maddon.
Now what for the Red Sox?
