JON LESTER RUMORS & GOSSIP
Jon Lester is 4-0 after Red Sox losses this season
Clay Buchholz has been the early story for the Red Sox rotation so far this year with his dominating start but the #1 man in the rotation, Jon Lester, has settled into an important role as the Sox’ resident “stopper”. The Sox have been plagued with inconsistency in the back end of their rotation with the injuries and otherwise...

Jon, whatever you're doing this season is working so keep it up.
- From a fan.
He has been outstanding all year, but particularly in his last 2 starts. He and Clay Bucholz have been anchoring the rotation so far, with their brilliance. Neither of them have lost a decision so far. And that's been huge for us so far. Having a dominant 1-2...
Jon Lester stayed unbeaten, Stephen Drew hit his second career grand slam and the Boston Red Sox roughed up AL Cy Young winner David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 on Wednesday night.
Price (1-4) departed from the marquee pitching matchup because of left triceps tightness during Boston's eight-run third inning, which Drew finished with his towering homer off Jamey Wright....
The Red Sox really needed that one.
After losing nine of 11 games and falling all the way to third place in the American League East, Boston’s offense finally came through Wednesday night, pouring in nine runs in a 9-2 rout of Tampa Bay.
Jon Lester was strong again on the mound, allowing two runs on eight hits over seven innings to run his record to 6-0, and he credited the Red...
Sometimes, a win’s a win. Other times, it can matter a little bit more.
Wednesday’s win over the Tampa Bay Rays was more of the latter for the Red Sox, who entered the day badly in need of a win. They turned to Jon Lester to right the ship, and that’s exactly what he did — just like he usually does.
The tough left-hander improved to 4-0 following a Red Sox loss this season...
Two aces faced off tonight in Jon Lester and David Price. However, it was everything but the anticipated rubber match. Much to the relief of the Red Sox offense, the 2012 Cy Young Award winner struggled mightily tonight.
The third inning was the exact jolt this Red Sox offense lusted. Stephen Drew led things off with a walk, followed by a Jacoby Ellsbury single to center. Then,...
The Red Sox had a special guest on Saturday afternoon.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was down on the field while the Red Sox were taking batting practice. Meyer spent some time talking to Boston’s ace, Jon Lester.
Meyer’s Buckeyes went undefeated in 2012, but were not eligible for a bowl game or the National Championship because of transgressions made by the program before...
With the way Jon Lester was pitching on Friday night, all the Boston Red Sox needed was one run.
However, they got five as Lester spun a gem allowing just one hit in a complete game 5-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night at historic Fenway Park.
The Red Sox were swept in a series for the first time this season by the Texas Rangers, halting the positive momentum the Sox had been building throughout April.
Starter Jon Lester pitched six innings in the loss, and despite his offense giving him a considerable cushion, was unable to stave off the Rangers as they tied things up in the sixth. Lester admitted after the game that...
