Red Sox trade Lester to A's

Billy Beane may be going all-in this season. The A's have just acquired Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes from the Red Sox, in exchange for slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. Lester joins a stellar A's rotation, recently bolstered by the acquisition of Jeff Samardzija, but will he be enough to bring Beane and the A's a coveted World Series title?
