As a fan, I'm convinced the Yankees aren't in on Jon Lester, especially with reports of him choosing between the Cubs and the Giants, "soon". In the back of my mind, I never count out the Red Sox either when it comes to Lester... but what I just read about the New York Yankees was extremely interesting:
I just had a front office person tell me, "Don't count out the #yankees with Jon Lester.'' Scout hearing the same thing.Gotta wonder if Brian Cashman is doing what he does best... sneaking in, in the dead of night and making a last minute pitch for the meaty lefty...

One more important part of it. This comes from a diehard fan and BYB reader... Frank:
@BleednYankeeBlu @suzieprof @MyMiaLove @sweetg35 "Yanks were never truly involved in any discussion for Jon Lester" begs question. Why not?He's not wrong, you know, and it falls in place with that Tweet from Jerry Crasnick.

This is getting interesting. Once Lester signs... the other free agents will all fall in place.
