Lesterrific!

Posted by bdowd625 on August 9, 2010

Good win for the Sox today in the Bronx. Their offense sucked ass for the third time in the series, but Jon Lester was filthy in 6.1 strong innings and the bullpen navigated its way through a Yankee minefield to escape with the victory. Boston had to have this one after dropping two clunkers to the Bombers on Saturday and Sunday. John Lackey and Josh Beckett? The Sox have a better chance with Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound lately. Who the hell thought that would be possible at the start of the season?

Let’s hope Tampa Bay continues to struggle so the Sox can hang around in the playoff race a little longer. I, for one, am not ready to pack it in just yet, but Boston needs to start making up ground in a hurry to have a shot at the postseason. Otherwise, I’ll be forced to turn my attention the Patriots, and I’m not quite ready for that.

Poll question time:
