This is a very random thread, but does anyone know anything about Jon Lesters current condition? I know he's battling some form of cancer, but im curious to know how he's doing. Any articles?

There's an article on ESPN.com today about Lester. It states that Lester's cancer is in remission and his CT scans are "clean" ... which is awesome news. He also expects to be with the Red Sox during Spring Training.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester has been cleared by doctors to end chemotherapy.

"He's going to have one more treatment and then he's done," Boston manager Terry Francona said at baseball's winter meetings. "So, from where I sit, the meetings are already a success." :D:
