The Red Sox have traded their ace, Jon Lester, along with Jonny Gomes to Oakland for home run champ Yoenis Cespedes. Lester is in the last year of his contract and Cespedes can become a free agent in 2015. There is a chance that the Red Sox will try to bring Lester back in the off-season but he will demand a hefty price. Jonny Gomes is a native of Northern California and has played with the Oakland A’s previously.
Lester will be greatly missed by Red Sox Nation as he played a huge part in bringing two World Series Trophies to the hub.
