Lester Expected To Make Decision Tonight Or Tomorrow

Buster Olney, ESPN:
The Jon Lester talks have entered the final turn, with an expectation that a choice will be made no earlier than Monday night and no later than Tuesday, according to sources involved in the negotiations.

Lester has drawn interest from the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers.
It was reported that the Red Sox made Lester an offer of 6/130.

FWIW, which is probably nothing, Jayson Stark gives the Red Sox the third-best chance at signing Lester, at 8-to-1 odds. The Cubs lead the way at 3-to-1, with the Giants next at 5-to-1.
