Lester/Cespedes a good deal for both teams. Oakland gets a dominant rental who can be a David Cone-like hired gun, BOS gets needed power.

Wonder if Verlander thinks the #Athletics still had the #Tigers in mind on this one

Immediate concern is that #Athletics offense has struggled big time over last couple years without Cespedes in lineup.
