Report: Jon Lester Extended for 5 years, $30 Million

Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports that Jon Lester has been extended for 5 years at $30 million total, with a $13 million option for 2014. The source is reportedly someone close to the team (as opposed to an actual official or someone who'd go on record), so it's possible this is untrue. Sounds like a good deal to me, especially if last year was the turning point that it seemed. Locking up a tough lefty for cheap money is rarely a bad move. I hope the report is true.
