    A lot has been made about A.J. Pierzynski’s work behind the plate this season. But the last 3 starters he caught? 22 IP, 5 ER.

    So what!! The old guys behind the plate are just that... What team would take our catching ? We can do better.

    Kind of stupid move by Dickey. Facing a rookie , who has probably never faced a knuckleballer, he throws a " fastball." Thank you.

    What is unbelievable is how our genial skipper plays a close game in late innings, that is no hit and run, no steal attempts, no nothing but leave the runners stuck in the ground like scarecrows...bogart on a 3 and 1 count doubles, a perfect hit and run situation, runner stuck at first cant score...

    Another issue, what is Lester doing with 121 pitches in eighth inning? Yesterday Tazawa and Koji were rusty due to lack of pitching, tomorrow and off day, so on tuesday with rays they could be even rustier...taz and koji are a combo as important as any in Sox regular playing...

    Whatever the SOX offered Lester, they should stick to it. If another team goes higher, let them have him.

    I have to agree. jon is a very good pitcher who was excellent in the playoffs but he isn't worth a 7 year 150+ Contract.

    Lester usually faces opponents #1, which accounts for a lot of it.

    Very few players are worth what they are being paid. That is the nature of the game these days. If we won't pay Lester, somebody else will. Then we can only hope that an untested kid like Owens develops into the big time starter that Lester has become. He might. He might not. The odds are probably against it.

    "Whatever the SOX offered Lester, they should stick to it. If another team goes higher, let them have him. "


    Well the Sox totally lowballed him which isn't so smart. http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/red-sox-s-lowball-offer-might-cost-them-lester-041214" rel="nofollow">http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/red-sox-s-lowball-offer-might-cost-them-lester-041214


    4 years, 70-80 million according to fairly wide report. Chance it isn't true I suppose but if it is, that's low. Lester deserves more than that. 5 years 105 million or so. 


    If he wants more than that, he's not worth it.
