    Maybe it was his last 4 starts before the playoffs was out of reach, but I know he lost 4 starts in a row when the Sox needed wins to try to make the playoffs.

    He lost 4 in a row at the end of July/early August (hardly "choke" time of the season).

    In those 4 losses he let up 3, 4, 4, and 2 ERs. Again, hardly "choke" numbers. After those 4, the Sox won 8 of the next 10.

    So the red flops weren't the better team in '04....it was just a case of the Yankees choking?

    the only chokers in the 04 alcs

    were the red sox

    and they stopped choking after game 3 once the pressure was off

    I don't think either team did themselves proud in '04. For the Yanks to lose four, there was another melonhead squad who had to lose three out of the gate and then need things to break just right before getting swept completely.

    Lester may not be the horse that everyone has come to expect at the moment, but if I had to choose, I'll take him over Beckett any day as my #1 just simply because you never know when Beckett is going to pull up lame - you only know that it will most likely be when you most need him.  Lester will work through whatever is off and right his ship and will be there when the roll is called in October - one has to hope Beckett will be there too.  Admittedly when Josh is right - he is lights out - but how many "2010's" has he had?

    If that logic helps you sleep at night, I guess.

    Now, if the Yankees were the first team to rally from a 3-0 deficit, I'd be willing to bet you might somehow be more one-sided with how spread the shame around....

    I don't know if you're a jerk, but this thread was started as a kneejerk reaction to a poor Lester outing after several mediocre ones.  It just means he's in a bit of a funk right now.  If you showed any perspective on the matter, you would find that all the top pitchers of the game go through these periods at some point.  If your standard is Sandy Koufax or Pedro Martinez in their primes, you will find that all the very good pitchers are bound to disappoint you at one time or another.

    i think LESTER needs to go on the DL.
    4 bad starts in a row; he definitely must be injured somewhere.
