A's get Lester, Gomes from Red Sox for Cespedes

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics won the Jon Lester sweepstakes, acquiring the left-hander and outfielder Jonny Gomes from the Boston Red Sox for slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes before Thursday's trade deadline.

Oakland, with the best record in baseball at 66-41, also received cash from Boston in another blockbuster deal by A's general manager Billy Beane. The Red Sox also get a draft pick in a deal confirmed by both teams.

"I believe that the deliberations leading to the two trades we did today were deeply analyzed, thoughtful and value-added," A's owner Lew Wolff said in an email. "The best trades are when all parties have potential benefits, and what Billy accomplished is an example of such a win-win. The calls I have received from other owners were very complimentary."
