3. Jon Lester will get his act together:
The mysteriously mediocre lefthander tweeted the other day that he wants to spend his whole career in Boston. It’s a nice sentiment, but you’d never know that watching his mannerisms on the mound. Perhaps his alternately grim and grouchy demeanor has to do with his struggles (5-6, 4.49 ERA) and his frustration in trying to solve them, but the reality is the 28-year-old needs to stop letting what he perceives as bad calls to affect him and start pitching like the would-be ace who won 19 games and whiffed 225 just two seasons ago. I believe he will and can do it. And then maybe he’ll look like he’s having fun once in a while.
