Wasn’t Jon Lester suppose to be the ace of this pitching staff? Well at 5-7 with a 4.80 ERA for the season he’s far from it.
After the game the lefty said, “It’s been a frustrating year and it was a frustrating night. It keeps adding on and I’m getting tired of it. I try to make adjustments and try to do the things I need to do and I’m just not getting results.”
The guys try to figure out what the issue is with the starter this year and Gresh can’t explain it, “I can’t figure out Jon Lester and his words scare me more than his performance.”
Do you think the Sox should try and move Lester for a pitcher who might just need a change? Is there risk in getting rid of the starter?
“There is the chance if you trade Jon Lester he does a Youk and he goes somewhere and he pitches well, but I don’t think he’s ever going to be the number one starter that everyone wants him to be.”
