Poor Jon Lester. Has a good game and gets yanked because of an injury. Just can’t catch a break lately, even when the going’s good.
- All it took for the Red Sox to win last night was one inning of offense. Seven runs scored in the second inning and another win for Boston. (Red Sox use big second inning to beat Blue Jays)
- Are you a #Lacktator? Because I sure am. John Lackey has been great this season, and it’s about time that he started earning that $15 million per year. (John Lackey finally living up to his contract)
- Despite all the homers, Ryan Dempster has been a more-than-solid third starter for the Red Sox. Through the injuries & the slumps, he stands tall. (Why Ryan Dempster Is Proving A Very Valuable Red Sox)
- One inning, two strikeouts, and a whole bunch of high-fives. It’s Koji Uehara‘s world, and we’re all just living in it. (Perfect start for Uehara as Sox new closer)
- Clay Buchholz and healthiness haven’t been in the same sentence since May. And it seems like that won’t happen again for a while. (Clay Buchholz still hurting)
- We’re halfway through this season. The Red Sox are on top of the AL. Can they keep this up? The starting rotation will be the key for the stretch run. (Second half will be true test for deeper Red Sox rotation)
- One and done for the series? Melky Cabrera sure took a quick exit out of Fenway Park. (Blue Jays place Melky Cabrera on disabled list with left knee tendinitis)
The real reason for Uehara’s success:
@BACowett No really… like some eye of newt… some pixy dust… everlasting gobstopper and an egg roll. That = Koji Power.
