    Jon Lester Announced as Red Sox’ Opening Day Starter

    When the Red Sox face the Yankees on April 1, we won’t see familiar faces like Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira or Curtis Granderson, but we know who will be pitching to the no-name Yankees. The Red Sox announced Jon Lester will be the Opening Day starter. Lester has had a fantastic spring with a 0.90 ERA, 0.500 WHIP, 16 strikeouts and just four walks in 20 innings. Lester will try to bounce back from a down 2012 season in which he went 9-14 with a 4.82 ERA and 1.383 WHIP. Clay Buchholz, Ryan Dempster, Felix Doubront and John Lackey will follow Lester in the Red Sox’ rotation.

    Lester against Sabathia 4/1 in the Bronx should be a good one.

    Let's hope.  I am excited about lester's spring and a redemption huge year for him.  But, history has taught me to never count on Jonny in April.

    The last time the Red Sox started the season in the Bronx was in 2005.  David Wells started for the Red Sox and 50,000 Yankee fans were chanting "A**hole" at him.   LOL

    Kinda figured that's the way the rotation was going to go. They've been saying all spring that Dempster was their #3 and Lackey was the #5. Pretty east to figure out the rest.

    Hopefully JL can take his ST success into the regular season. He has certainly looked impressive.

    Hope so.
    After last year, Lester really can't afford his usual slow start.
