  • Ooops.. broke the permalink for this thread. Sorry. Not like anyone can say anything about Jon Lester that will help his sorry state of affairs.

  • The question is: does Lester have options? Though Pawtucket obviously has done Daniel Bard a fat lot of good so far …

    A four-run deficit in the sixth can be overcome, of course, but I doubt it. Wonder why the Blue Jays always roll over for the Yankees and then come back from the dead against the Sox.

  • How come Tazawa can get these guys out, but Lester can’t. Is playing hurt, is he tipping his pitches, does he have chicken pox?

  • Melancon channelling Lester. There goes the game …

  • Assuming Aceves will not have any games to save on the upcoming road trip to Texas and New York B.V. brings him into a 15-7 game.

  • Aceves keeps the deficit at eight. The comeback should be a piece of cake now …

  • Especially with Nick Punto coming up in the bottom of the ninth!

  • Surprisingly the Blue Jays do not bring in their closer.

  • I know the wild card is still in reach … but more fittingly: Wait till next year!

  • Agreed, pbe.

    This weekend epitomizes why the Sox are in last place and .500…Beckett and Lester can’t pitch for shit this year.

  • Just to be completely self-indulgent…ag’s title makes me think of the Pink Floyd album Animals, and thereby one of my favorite songs “Sheep”. The Sox’ season seems well-summed to me by the first couple lines of lyrics in that song:

    “Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
    Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air…”

    Haha.. funny. I went to a Pig roast this weekend. Must have been my subconscious messing with the titles.
