    Sox gave him an extra days rest.  They should give him 15 on the fake DL.

    Although it didnt help much that Gomes makes that error... still walks will kill you... he is already at 41 pitches ....

    I like Lester but a 41 pitch 1st inn is unacceptable for any MLB pitcher.

    Lester will not have any rest as the sox will go quickly this inning...

    If you look closely at Lester, he is already sweating like a pig... i noticed that his last game too...

    Lester needs to go down to Pawtucket to get some rest and confidence.  What a disappointment he has turned out to be..  Can't afford to have him and Dempster as part of the starting five ...  Bring up Aceves if they have too..

    Im pretty sure that Aceves is no longer with the sox org.

    Lets not get crazy, which is what Aceves is.  He also is claiming to be hurt and I don't think he has pitched in a month.

    Sox had Chen and let him go, as did eight other teams.  A lot of people (Theo) were wrong about him.

    I am no Lester lover as you can tell but many pitchers and athletes sweat a lot.  Michael Jordan for instance.  He was pretty good.

    Gomes' error hurt for sure, but two walks are two walks.  Lester, yet once again comes up small.  Out of all of our starters, the one I'd bet the most on to not be able to overcome an error would be Lester.  Still early, and maybe he can go 5 or 6, but it's getting so when Lester pitches, I just count that as a loss and hope the other starters can pick up the slack throughout the remainder of the series.

    By this time, Lester must be a head case. For guy who was known for throwing strikes, he all over the place, throwing a ton of pitches. He's become a mediocre pitcher. Maybe a change of scenery might help.

    Life is what happens while were busy making other plans.

    They should have traded him for Wil Myers.

    I'm not so concerned about his personal hygiene. What I'm concerned with is that since a hot starthe's an  atrocious piccher. And he was woful last year too. That's the bit I'm worried about.

    Even with Gomes' error, it would have been nice if Lester could have gotten out of the inning earlier than he did.

    However, everyone's been blasting Lester for the 40 pitches in the first inning, so at least give him credit for setting down with eight pitches in the second and 11 in the third. He's giving himself the chance to go at least six and giving the Sox the chance to come back -- at least so far.

    He had two outs and had to retire Moustakas, a left handed batter.  He couldn't get it done.

    Just nine more pitches from Lester in the fourth.
