Cardinals joining pursuit of SP Jon Lester?
According to Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM, the Cardinals have joined the Jon Lester sweepstakes.Advice
: St. Louis has six legitimate starting pitchers between Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Lance Lynn, John Lackey, Carlos Martinez, and Marco Gonzales, but Waino recently underwent elbow surgery and Wacha dealt with shoulder problems throughout 2014, so maybe there's some fire to this smoke. Lester is also being courted by the Red Sox, Cubs, and Braves. The 30-year-old left-hander had a 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 220/48 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season between Boston and Oakland. Rotoworld.com
