Player Notes
Red Sox principal owner John Henry told the Boston Herald that extension talks with impending free agent Jon Lester have been tabled until after the 2014 season.

Advice: Lester doesn't want to be distracted any longer by in-season contract negotiations and probably wants a taste of the open market -- where there could be crazy money flying around this winter. The 30-year-old left-hander is putting together the best season of his career at the perfect time, boasting a 2.50 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 142/31 K/BB ratio in 137 innings. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier this month that the Red Sox were prepared to offer him "$100 million for five years, or thereabouts."

Jon Lester picked up his 10th win of the season after shutting out the Royals over eight innings on Sunday.

Advice: Lester was, once again, phenomenal. The lefty limited the Royals to four hits and two walks while striking out eight. He has now allowed one earned run or fewer in seven out of his last nine outings. Lester's ERA is down to 2.50 with a 1.12 WHIP and a 142/29 K/BB ratio in 137 innings. He'll look to continue the success when he takes on the Rays in Tampa on Friday.
