Last time out, Jon Lester did something special. Now, he has a chance — like 250 other pitchers, by my count to repeat that feat. Unfortunately, the odds aren’t the best: 249 have failed.
To make matters worse for the Red Sox, it might take something special for the Red Sox to actually have a chance at winning this game, considering 1. They’re on the road, and 2. They’re facing a pitcher with a modicum of talent. I would say the Sox are the Boston Celtics of MLB, but the Celtics now have actually won a road game in the last two weeks, something the Red Sox (0-6 on the road in that span) cannot say.
So comment away!
