Jon Lester Doesn’t Want to Discuss Contract Extension During Season, Thinks It’s ‘Too Much of a Distraction’

2013 is a big year for Jon Lester in more ways than one. Not only will Lester’s performance have a huge impact on the type of season the Red Sox have, but the left-hander is also pitching for his next contract. Lester is in the last guaranteed year of the five-year, $30 million extension he signed prior to the 2009 season. The Sox hold a $13 million club option for 2014, but this...

C.C. Sabathia not concerned about drop in velocity

Many times a drop in a pitcher's fastball velocity can be indicative of an injury.  Or it can be part of the normal aging process.  Pitcher just can't continue throwing as hard as they used to as they get older.  So what's the reason for C.C. Sabathia's drop in velocity? No one knows for sure, but Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says Sabathia is not...

Jon Lester Admits ‘It’ll Be Weird’ Playing Against Kevin Youkilis, Who Is Now ‘One of the Bad Guys’

Kevin Youkilis earned the respect of teammates and fans during his eight-plus seasons in Boston. None of that matters now. “Now he’s one of the bad guys. We’ve got to worry about him,” Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester told reporters on Sunday. Youkilis, who was drafted by the Red Sox in 2001, won two World Series rings and was selected to three All-Star Games during his time in...

Opening Day: AKA Spring Training Game #33

Today started like every other weekday season opener for me: I developed a cough, called out sick, piled on Yankee gear from head to toe, and went to my best friend's house to watch the game. The excitement of the season opener soon gave way to the ambivalence that comes from watching a less than ace pitcher and a bunch of utility players take the field. In other words--a Spring...

Red Sox’ Opening Day Victory Shows Exact Formula Boston Must Use in Order to Win Games

Take a good, long look at the Red Sox’ Opening Day victory. It’s exactly how this year’s team plans to win ballgames. The offense collected 13 hits, Jon Lester pitched five solid innings and the bullpen proved to be the shutdown unit that many anticipate it being this season. On top of all that, the Sox showed grit, hustle, aggressiveness, plate discipline and the ability to...

Game 1: 3 stars of the game

In the first game of the season the Red Sox have already made it difficult for me to pick the top 3 stars of the game. This column will run after every game. The idea is to pick 3 players from either team, who put in the best performances, just like the 3 stars of the game for hockey. I will be keeping track of who earns the awards and with that will be able to accurately predict...

Red Sox 8, Yankees 2

Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox got off to a quick start after a dreadful 2012 season, giving new manager John Farrell an 8-2 win over the barely recognizable New York Yankees on opening day Monday. Newcomer Shane Victorino led a revamped Red Sox lineup with three RBIs and rookie Jackie Bradley Jr. walked three times and scored twice in his big league debut. Boston's big day...
