Notes: The Sox have won two straight after losing nine of 10. … Given that Lester pitched 5.1 innings in his last start and the goal today is six, it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll get four relievers in the game. … The Red Sox have their annual meeting with the MLB Players Association reps this morning. Those tend to take 60-90 minute and take away a little time on the field. … The Sox will be doing team-wide fundamentals before their remaining home games, brushing up on relays, backing up throws, run-downs and the like. This is primarily so that when a mistake is made during the season, the manager can say something along the lines of, “I don’t know why that happened. We worked on it in spring training.” … Amusing stat of the spring: Triple-A catcher Mark Wagner leads the team with two triples and both came in the same game.
