    It's got nothing to do with Lester making adjustments.

    I traded him off my fantasy team.

    You can thank me at the end of the season. Wink

    LOL FourBs.

    This is why I don't have any Red Sox players on my fantasy team. The second they're on my team, they're doomed! LOL

    It's also the reason why I try to get Yankees players on my team. Anyone wonder why CC is struggling this year? I really need to get a hold of Cano....

    Seriously though, Lester looked good last night. If I'm not mistaken, none of his Ks came by the way of his cutter. Encouraging. 

    I believe he will turn it around also.  As Southpaw said, patience.

    [QUOTE]

     

    Lester has changed his pitching approach and its very noticeable with his pitch selection. Hes laid off the cutter on 0-2 counts and has used his great change up as well as his curve, which has been working better for him as of late. Farrell also mentioned throwing a different cutter without so much bite on it to make it more controllable.

    3 of the last 4 games have been quality starts, with last nights game being the best of the last 4. Hes making the adjustments and is trending in the right direction. Long way to go, but its encouraging to see him do whatever he needs to do to become successful again. So much for being stubborn and channeling his inner Beckett...Id just say that some here have absolutely no patience. I still believe he will turn things around. IMHO, Hes too talented not to.

    Thanks for the link, SP.

    Speier is one of the few Boston writers that I don't want to slap on a regular basis.

    Same here.

     

    I liked his idea of trying to find a Paul Byrd-type of starter, for depth.

    You definitely need to get Cano on your team!

    CC is a mess! LOL

    I have more patience for the Sox, than I do my FB team. Wink

     

    I agree with you and SP, Lester has the talent to turn his season around.

    He's getting there.
