Jon Lester

This definitely qualifies as a blockbuster trade deadline deal, as the Red Sox have sent ace Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes to the Oakland A’s for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

If you needed further proof that Oakland was going for it this year, here you go. With Lester essentially being a rental player for the final two months of the season, the A’s boast arguably the best rotation in the majors with Jeff Samardzija, Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, and the newly acquired Lester. Cespedes will become a free agent following the 2015 season.
