And Chief is right, they'll be reluctant to give Jon Lester a big contract. But they'll almost equally reluctant if the payroll before doing so is $85 or $95 million. They always say the money is there for a player if they need it and they tend to view each offer in a vacuum. The payroll could be $30 million and Terry Ryan would not vastly overpay for a FA. It's against his religion.
