One thing Braves have going for them with Lester is that he would a lot closer to home, actually just outside of Atlanta, than in Boston or Chicago. Don't know if that would play much of a roll, but...
Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings...... And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
