Your Morning Dump...Sox lose, Lester scratched, Drew back, Holt to Pawtucket, Clay seeks second opinion

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

The All-Star Game/Home Field Debate: the arguments, the stats, and possible alternatives

We all remember the 2002 All-Star game. Both teams famously ran out of pitchers, thus ending the game in an embarrassing, unsatisfying tie. Not wanting another episode like this, the following year the MLB decided the game would now determine home field advantage for the World Series. This year marks the 10th anniversary of a so-called “meaningful All-Star game....

Ryan Dempster Takes Over Jon Lester’s Spot in Rotation As Red Sox Take on Yankees in Rubber Match

Sunday was supposed to be Jon Lester‘s turn in the Red Sox rotation, but his first start since the All-Star break was pushed back until Tuesday night in order to give the lefty some more time off.

Should the Sox trade Lester?

Conor Frederick Contributing Writer It's no secret that Jon Lester has had his struggles this season. After getting off to a flying 6-0 start, he's been 2-6 with a 6.27 ERA over his last 11 starts, according to CSNNE. Talk about a downhill slide. So, the question becomes do we use him as a bargaining chip in a possible trade? He has a $13 million option for next year, but...
