THAT'S MORE LIKE LESTER
Jon Lester's status was a question mark until last night, as he went 6.1 innings, striking out 7, allowing only 2 hits and 1 walk. Although it wasn't against anyone formidable, and Cleveland manager Eric Wedge is beyond "lame-duck" status, the fact that he could go out and throw 84 quality pitches after taking a line drive off the knee is what's important.
It was also nice to see the Red Sox win a game. It's amazing how much a day off helps.
Jeremy Sowers vs. Daisuke Matsuzaka tonight.
