Report: Red Sox willing to offer a 6-year deal to Jon Lester

The Red Sox are reportedly increasing their efforts to bring Jon Lester back to Boston.

Lester was dealt to the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline in exchange for Yoenis Cespedes, and bringing the beloved left-hander back into the mix in Beantown for 2015 would send the Fenway faithful into a frenzy.

The two sides talked about a contract extension last season, but the Red Sox low-balled Lester with a reported four-year deal worth between $70 million and $80 million.

Lester was an integral part of Boston's 2007 and 2013 championship teams, but, as reported by the Providence Journal, it could take a six-year deal worth around $120 million to take him off the market.
