    Big game for Lester to show what kind of pitcher he is! We need him to pitch well and deep into the game. I see this as a test for him; his team needs him; lets see how he responds.

    Will be Aceves tomorrow. Dempster can pitch on regular rest Fri. Buchholz will throw tomorrow, hope for bullpen Fri, possible to start Sun.

    Farrell mentioned De La Rosa as candidate for next Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays.

    Man, on a night when we need a starter to go deep - then get a 1st inning run - Lester can't hit the broad side of a barn and just walked home a run - 4 walks, 25+ pitches.  I'm getting tired of watching him nit pick, then eyeball the ump on pitches that are clearly balls.  I hope he gets his head out of his posterier because his body language indicates a serious lack of mental toughness.

    4 walks, no command and only 1 run.

    Hate to say this guys, but I knew Lester would not come through for his team tonight. He almost NEVER does in big games.

    He hasn't come up big when we needed him lately - he's done it in the past and that's what's so frustrating.  He has good stuff but most of the time it looks as though he doesn't trust it.  When he was going good at the beginning of the year, I thought maybe Farrel helped get "his mind right," but the last few starts - egad!  Throw strikes, get ahead of guys, trust your stuff - and if they belt it a mile - oh well - at least you got beat using your best stuff, not because you were nibbling.  And of course, as I type this, the Human Out - Drew hits into a DP.
