Will Myers, for a while, was lights out. But the last couple of years he looked like Will Middlebrooks at the plate. I don't get it. Maybe it's his first name.

Schilling did well and he wasn't as skinny as a scarecrow.

Of course Larry Lucchino made a difference. Epstein, Francona, and Lester have no love for Lucchino. Lester witnessed his characteristics first-hand..especially after the low-ball offer. Lester sided more »

Get your minds out of the sand, people. Like Lester himself siaid " it's not all about the money". I'll say for the umpteenth time. It was the relationship between Lester and 'El Presidente' Lucchino more »

With Larry Lucchino calling the shots for Boston and the way he treated Lester, there was never any doubt that he was aching to leave.

I'm sure that there'll be discussion somewhere about making the strike zone electronic where all the umpire does is throw up his arm to designate that his earpiece tells him it's a strike. This, in m more »

I'll bet that NOTHING gets to fruition with the Lucchino stamp. Actually, it was one of the big rifs between him and Epstein. Epstein resigned, then after getting 'more power', he came back. No, more »

The amount of years and money that Lester got at his age is really a gamble, yet, I really hated to see Lester go. Yes, he's durable, built for longevity, etc., etc., etc. ,but, he is human and prone more »

Well, if true, good luck to you Jon, and thanks for screwing things up way back when, Lucchino.

Good points, sportsboz, especially the relationship with the cancer foundations etc. Personally, I hope I'm wrong and he stays in Boston, but I think the Lucchino factor is larger than we all think. more »

Face it you guys(and Bogie..LOL), Lucchino blew it. The low-ball offer, was an insult to Lester. Being a peacemaker(like Bogie), Lester took the high road(like Bogie usually does) and said nothing. more »
