New Red Sox right fielder Yoenis Cespedes was not able to make it to Fenway Park in time to start Friday's game but did speak with the media about his trade the Boston.The power hitting outfielder acquired from the Oakland A's for pitcher Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes took a few moments to talk about the move that brought him to Boston as well as his future. Cespedes is expected to be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

While Cespedes talked in Boston, Jon Lester was doing the same in Oakland. While many believe a chance still exists that Lester could re-sign with the Sox in the off-season, his comments in Oakland certainly helped to keep the door open.
