Lester said to NBC as the video played on “He didn’t really say that.”

He continued saying “I doubt he’s afraid to say anything to anybody.”

Lester then began to chuckle, as even the thought of a young player like Contreras saying something like that to a savvy veteran like Lester was comical but Lester, thankfully, was a good sport about it.
