General Red Sox

The Good, The Bad …

The former:

Jon Lester becoming the first Sox pitcher since Pedro Martinez to strike out 10 batters in consecutive games. The last pitcher not named Pedro (or Roger) to do that? Bruce Hurst, May 10 and 16, 1986.

The latter:

Going 2-4 in the last six games at home, dropping back to back series. After going 6-4 on the road of all places, you'd hope for a little better from the Crimson Hose. Question: When John Smoltz makes his debut, who will he be replacing? Brad Penny, or Daisuke Matsuzaka?

In a perfect world, Buchholz would replace one, while Smoltz replaced the other.
But alas…
