    In Response to Re: Monday Night Game Thread White Sox vs. Red Sox - Peavy vs. Lester : Before labelling you a hindsighter, I went back and saw the post were you suggested they pull Lester before the inning started.  Fair enough.  Still, that hit was still a bloop, and had it landed in the right place, the Red Sox would have been out of that inning.  They just finished a double-header and they had four innings to fill with the bullpen.  I'd take my chances with the cagey Lester rather than a with a middle reliever, even if Lester doesn't have his best stuff.

    Yeah, I don't have a problem with Tito leaving him in. Isn't that what many fans complain about -- that managers don't let their pitchers try to pitch out of trouble. Lester's is an ace. I don't have a problem with letting an ace pitch out of a jam.

    The argument that would be fair to make would be that Lester threw too many pitches by then and should be conserved for the season.

    I didnt have a problem leaving him in LMR. pitch count was my only concern; his highest to date other than the no-hitter

    I have tolerance for mistakes.  It's part of the game.  I don't have tolerance for quitters.  Oh, did I hurt your feelings by calling you what you are?  Good, you thin-skinned wimp.  Now get a backbone and don't count your team out!

    I hear that Mr. Orsillo is  being courted by TNT... while he would greatly improve their announcing bullpen I fear losing him... or would this be a temporary/part-time gig?

    I saw your post earlier, and know that you're one of those posters that stands behind what you claim, regardless of the outcome later.  A real man.

    i think orsillo signed a new contract last year with NESN. TBS may be for the post season, he's been doing them for the past few years for them

    LATELY, LESTER CAN'T GET OUT OF HIS OWN WAY AGAINST
    OPPOSING TEAMS. TONITE, HE WAS BEHIND IN THE COUNT
    AGAINST NEARLY EVERY BATTER AND YOU AREN'T GONNA
    WIN THAT WAY, AGAINST THE WHITE SOX WHO HAVE A
    LOT OF PROFESSIONAL HITTERS ON THEIR TEAM, EVEN THO
    THEY HAVE UNDERPERFORMED. I'M TALKING ABOUT
    KONERKO, PIERRE, AJ, QUENTIN., ETC. FRANCONA, IN HIS
    ZEAL TO GET LESTER A WIN, COST THE SOX A CHANCE TO
    COMPETE. LESTER HAD NOTHING AND FRANCONA LET HIM
    THROW NEARLY 130 PITCHES, ENDANGERING HIS ARM
    AND PUTTING THE TEAM IN THE TOILET. THIS LOSS IS ON
    FRANCONA AS MUCH AS IT IS ON LESTER.

    TBS only does Sunday and post season games at present.  Does not sound like a full time job but I doubt NESN would give him every Sunday off to work on TBS. Personally , I would not mind losing him. There are plenty of others out there to replace him.

    assuming we are at full strength (minus dice k) pitching wise in a week, we will have 8 guys eligible for the bull pen, only 7 can possibly stay. who will you send down or boot out? dont think rich hill or wheelwr have options? cant quit wake (assume that he wont remember his bad back or something fishy) or aceves. what gives?

    The only reason Lester was left in the game was to give him a chance to get the win and and that is not a good reason at all.

    Unfortunately, thin-skinned grousers rule this message board when then the team loses.

    Let me amend a bit what I said about Lester. He is for sure
    a gamer, but a good manager should see that his pitcher is
    struggling and should get the pen up early, instead of
    desperately trying to get him the win. Lester should have
    not have come out for the sixth on any account. He was
    rapidly tiring and was all over the place. That's why you
    have a bullpen. I don't care if he's Walter Johnson....he
    was having a shaky night and with over 100 pitches ,
    the manager should have taken action....

    When Jenks returns tomorrow , Bowden goes back down. When Lackey comes back, Aceves or Wake goes back to the pen and Atchison probably goes back down.
