The Jon Lester saga continues between the Red Sox and their ace.

On Sports Sunday, Lou Merloni discussed what will happen if the Red Sox trade Lester at the deadline.

"I never thought they were going to, I'm starting to think they are," said Merloni. "If they trade him, they should get crushed for this. Because they're not going the extra distance to sign this guy. This thought that he might sign back, he might be interested. If you're not willing to go right now at $115-$120 [million] to even open up talks, what makes you think they're going to go $150-$160 and compete when he hits free agency? There's not a chance."
