As baseball’s winter meetings started in San Diego, the chase to land Jon Lester looked like it was coming to an end.

The free-agent starter is ready to choose a new home, and one lucky suitor could get some good news in the near future.

Lester is expected to make his choice before Tuesday night.

There are reports that the southpaw will choose between the Chicago Cubs and the World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

However, the Red Sox are not out of the race yet, and management is reportedly ready to sit down with the lefty on Monday.

Lester had been with the Red Sox for ten years before he was traded last year to the Oakland Athletics.
