Lester Good Enough To Lose; Red Sox Do, 3-0

(Thearon Henderson/Getty Images)This time, Jon Lester was respectable. Six and one-third innings, three earned runs. The problem is we have bigger expectations of Lester—he's supposed to be our 1A or 1B ace. He's not even close. And, to his credit, he knows it. Said Lester after the 3-0 loss to the A's, "A loss is a loss, It doesn't matter how well you'...

Jon Lester’s Good Effort Gets Spoiled, As Red Sox’ Opportunistic Offense Doesn’t Show Up

It’s been a Jekyll and Hyde season for Jon Lester, so it’s important to take advantage of his good days. The Red Sox didn’t do so on Saturday. Lester, who was a model of consistency from 2008 to 2011 before a rocky 2012 campaign, started 2013 in impressive fashion. Since beginning the year 6-0, however, Lester has become a symbol of inconsistency, as there’s simply no telling...

Raul Ibanez deserves 2013 All-Star berth

The following piece is on a Major League Baseball player of Cuban descent, who has been unbelievable the past several weeks, but will not be part of the 2013 All-Star Game barring a last-minute change. His name is not Yasiel Puig, but is nearly old enough to be his father. No, I’m talking about Raul Ibanez, who is going absolutely nuts in his third stint as a Seattle Mariner...

Mariners set record in 8-3 win over Halos

SEATTLE (AP) -- Raul Ibanez homered twice to give him 24 this season and the Seattle Mariners set a team home-run record in an 8-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night. The 41-year-old Ibanez hit a fourth-inning blast 438 feet into the right-field second deck and a 421-foot shot to center in the seventh. He has the fourth most homers in a season for a 41-year-old...

Mariners 8, Angels 3

Safeco Joe Saunders And Raul Ibanez Shine As Mariners Defeat The Angels 8-3

A popular band from Seattle sang, “run and tell all of the angels, this could take all night.” Well tonight in Seattle, the Angels were possibly thinking that this game could take all night to finally end, as the Seattle Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 8-3. The Mariners put a nice eight to nothing cushion for Joe Saunders to work with into the seventh inning which...

Moneyballed

If we learned anything from the book and film Moneyball, it’s that the teams that win games are the teams that score runs. The Red Sox didn’t do any scoring last night, held in check by the notorious A. J. Griffin, so they copped a loss. I’m not gonna dwell too much on it, other than to say despite the loss, Jon Lester put in a decent performance giving up just three runs...

Hernandez, Smoak lead M's past Angels 6-0

Workman gets the start

Source I can deal with the Red Sox loss from last night, because it came with some indications that Jon Lester might be getting back on track. Lester pitched a quality start, and while he was tagged for the loss, the fact that he made it through 6.1 innings and allowed just three runs gives me hope for the rest of the season. I suppose it’s appropriate for the final start before...

Red Sox-Athletics Live: Jon Lester Attempts to Rebound, Give Sox Their Fifth Straight Victory

8:03 p.m.: Reliever Matt Thornton, who was acquired from the White Sox on Friday, has joined the team. To make room for Thornton, Boston has optioned Steven Wright to Triple-A Pawtucket. Wright will head back down, but it’s not before he left a mark. The knuckleballer pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings in relief in Seattle on Thursday while earning his first major league win. In the...
