Report: Red Sox could prefer Jon Lester to James Shields

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/14) The Red Sox will likely set their sights on potential free agent right-hander James Shields in the offseason. But they could instead attempt to bring Jon Lester back to Beantown, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald has speculated that the Sox could offer Shields at least $20 million a year in exchange for a shorter contract of no more than four years. But Lester could prove more attractive despite a bit of a higher cost. He is two years younger.

Shields has not earned his "Big Game" nickname with a 4.96 lifetime ERA in postseason action. Lester is 6-4 with a 2.57 ERA in the postseason.

Jon Lester, James Shields to meet Tuesday in Wild Card game

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) The Athletics will travel to Kansas City to face the Royals Tuesday in the AL Wild Card game, with Jon Lester facing James Shields in the single-elimination game.

Lester (16-11) has delivered 19 straight quality starts, with 11 coming since his trade to Oakland, and he delivered a 2.18 ERA and 86:19 K:BB ratio in 90 2/3 innings after the All-Star break. Shields (14-8) has turned in six straight quality starts, and he posted a 2.31 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 30:4 K:BB ratio in 35 innings over five September outings. The winner will face the Angels in the AL Division Series.

Jon Lester strikes out seven in loss vs. Angels

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) Athletics pitcher Jon Lester took a loss Wednesday, giving up five runs (three earned) on eight hits in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Angels.

Lester (16-11) has rattled off 11 straight starts since being traded to Oakland from Boston. The Angels spread the damage throughout the outing, scoring in the first, third, fifth and seventh innings. He owns a 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 220:48 K:BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings. Lester's next start will presumably come in the Wild Card round.

Jon Lester turns in fantastic start Friday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/14) Athletics pitcher Jon Lester turned in a great start Friday against the Phillies. 

Lester allowed one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. Lester gave up his only run in the fourth inning. With one out in the inning, Lester allowed a solo home run against Ryan Howard. The run didn’t impact him too much, as Lester tossed three more scoreless innings before being pulled. 

With the win, Lester improved to 16-10. He’ll take on the Angels in his next start.
