The MLB champion San Francisco Giants roll out the welcome mat for free agent Jon Lester today. The Giants have a little more money to spend now that Pablo Sandoval is a Red Sox.

Lester seems to be the one guy holding up many other baseball moves. Other free agents want to know Lester's pricetag before signing their deals.

So far, Lester has met with Boston, the Cubs, Atlanta and perhaps St. Louis.

Reports say he wants to make all of his visits before next week's MLB Winter Meetings.
