    RSN is very discouraged. So are Remy and Orsillo, Tom Caron and Jim Rice. Why is anything that you say any different or enlightening. Any questions?

    Again, why question this fan for being frustrated over this turn of events?  Is every fan supposed to feel how you do and react as you do?   If that were the case every poster on this forum would be questioning each other for what they post.

    Andrewmitch seems to think that he has a monopoly on being frustrated. Have you read his posts over the years? It gets very repetitive, boring, and predictable. I was merely asking him to elaborate on his " 9-1, any questions". What is his question? Is he saying " I told you so?"

    How would you know how Andrew posts?  You just got here.  I also know of a repetitive poster because I did not just get here and he has a few aliases one is even of a girl and he constantly tells people how to post and questions their motives, very much like you're doing.

    I think we can all agree that Lester "spit-the bit"  If ever they needed a decent outing it was today, and he showed no guts at all. It was either 3 game lead, or 5 game lead, and he didn't give the team any shot at all. Ace? Uh, NO

    Re-read what I posted.  You copied it yourself.  I said he pitched well in the 2008 ALDS, not the 2008 PS.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Can Lester Handle the Pressure? : Career averages aren't really misleading.  He pitched very well in the 2008 ALDS. I'm not trying to fudge numbers.  He has an ERA of 4.82 in his last 3 postseason starts and I'm very disappointed in his start today.  There are some negatives on his big-game tally sheet. I hope he does better in the big games the rest of the way this year.

    The point is that he was NOT consistent in 2008 and lost in 2009.....you saw G3, right?   Not consistent.  He can get knocked around.  Which means he is not a big game pitcher and that he in fact, can not handle the pressure.

    Re: Can Lester Handle the Pressure?

    yes, now let's rip the 15-7 guy because he didnt throw a 7 Ip, 11 K shutout today. Obviously, some of you fans can't handle the pressure of a Sox 4.5 game lead. I lead the league on this forum for doomsaying and I even think this is an alltime bonehead thread. You guys are beyond belief. Lester is one of the 10 best pitchers in the AL not named Verlander, Weaver, Haren, and a few others. He threw a ridiculous amount of pitches for 4 IP, and he had an off day. End of story. As for big game pitching, when are some of our vaunted hitters going to help the team out.

    I'd still take Lester over Haren or Weaver, although Weaver is having a terrific season, aided by pitching in CA.

    If Lester was gonna implode, bettah today than in October!

    Haren has been lights out even when he loses. Lester though is probably a better pitcher however.

    Haren is having a good year, but he too is benefiting from a pitching venue. Check out his numbers in hitting venues. Same with Weaver.

    It really is such an overlooked aspect of playing in the AL West.  Pitching for Oakland, LAA, or Seattle guarantees that ~75% of your starts will be made in a pitcher's park.

    And against lesser competition in a rediculously unbalanced schedule.

    LAA and Tex are still good teams... and Oakland has ability to win some games.

    My point is, CA's rotation feeds off a steady diet of M's and A's.
    What would they do playing 72 games against Boston/NY/Toronto/Rays?

    Angels pitching away from their home pitching venue is worse than Boston's away from Fenway.

    Spin doctors are at work to deflect Lester's predictably poor performance in a big game.  Reality is a hard pill to swallow. Read my pre game prediction , and tell me that it was not right on the money.

    It would figure Mikey would love a negative Sox fan, wouldn't it? lol I believe I'm the female you're referring to. Whatsamatter? Nothing going on in the Bronx or City Island? The only thing you have to do is troll baseball message boards?

    Maybe if you got out once in a while you'd meet some females, and then it wouldn't be so confusing for you.

    It wasn't. You said Shields would throw a shutout.
    Sorry. No payoff.

    Yeah. Brilliant Harness. One run, not a shutout. And 8 1/3 , not a complete game. Okay , happy now?  Big deal. The point was and is , Shields totally outpitched Lester.  Were you surprised?   I was not.
