The Red Sox have reportedly been considering trading Jon Lester for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.

Steve Buckley and Lou Merloni aren't willing to deal Lester for Kemp, but Bob Neumeier wants to get something in return for the Red Sox ace before he walks away in the offseason.

"You seem to be reluctant to trade Jon Lester under any circumstance," said Neumeier. "He's going to be gone in two months. Get what you can for him."

"I don't know Matt Kemp is the best you can do," said Buckley. "You want to trade him for a bag of balls."
