In a nutshell: New York Yankees hitting sucketh (save Gardy and the occasional Tex). ARENA --- Sports: How Far the Rivalry Has Fallen --- The Yankees and Red Sox Have Slipped So Much, Their Games Are Shorter By Brian Costa and Daniel Barbarisi 1 August 2014 The Wall Street Journal (Copyright (c) 2014, Dow Jones & Company, Inc.) Boston -- The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, whose rivalry was once hailed as the greatest in sports, have fallen on hard times. Less than a year removed from winning the World Series, the Red Sox sit in last place in the American League East, a position that prompted them to unload pitchers Jon Lester and John Lackey in separate trades Thursday. The once-fearsome Yankees, now barely above .500, have been reduced to scrapping with the likes of the Kansas City Royals for the second AL wild-card spot. But as the Yankees and Red Sox meet for a three-game series at Fenway Park this weekend, they are losing more than their traditional relevance. They are even losing one of the ...

Reading the paper today. The headline on the front page of The Republican declared " OPENING DAY The Baltimore Orioles beat Jon Lester and the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox 2-1 at Fenway Park." Nice headline. Except that they played in BALTIMORE! So many people out of work and yet the Springfield newspaper can't seem to find a proof reader.
berita hari ini : Red Sox Take 3-2 Series Lead Back to Boston - Wall Street Journal Updated Oct. 29, 2013 2:43 a.m. ET ST. LOUIS—The last time the Boston Red Sox clinched a championship at Fenway Park, they used carrier pigeons to deliver inning-by-inning updates to soldiers at a fort 40 miles away. The World Series was a September event, with games played in the light of day and lasting less than two hours. And their best young player was a 23-year-old hurler named George Herman Ruth. The year was 1918. Ninety-five years later, after a wait long enough to create the Curse of the Bambino, lament it for decades, break it and almost forget about it, the city of Boston will have a chance to witness the Red Sox celebrate a title on Massachusetts soil once again. Boston pitcher Jon Lester pitched 7 2/3 innings while giving up just one run as the Red Sox beat the Cardinals, 3-1, and he played a little defense, too, here converting a bunt into an out.

Red Sox, with Jon Lester pitching an excellent games, beat the Cardinals 3 - 1 and a 3 games to 2 lead. The next games will be at Fenway Park and looking forward to another Worl Series championship! GO Red Sox!
Boston is on brink of the third baseball World Series title in 10 years. The battery-powered Red Sox regained the best-of-seven series advantage. The lefty Jon Lester outlasted and outpitched Adam Wainwright in a compelling duel of elite pitchers in 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the World Series at Busch Stadium in Louisiana. That gives Boston a 3-2 lead over St. Louis in this riveting Series, and sets up Fenway Park in Boston for a possible World Series clincher in Game 6 on Wednesday. No matter which team wins, Fenway Park will be where the World Series ends for the first time since 1975. The Red Sox are aiming for their third World Series title since 2004, while trying to prevent the Cardinals form winning their third since '06. The last time the Sox won a World Series at home? That would be 1918 Ian Browne / MLB.com
berita hari ini : In World Series opener, Jon Lester excels as Red Sox roll over hapless Cardinals - Boston.com By Chad Finn, Boston.com Columnist If you're one of those straggling Red Sox fans who still believes in curses and ghosts and various other apparitions despite all of the affirming joys that have occurred since 2004, have I got a cockamamie theory to sell you. Here goes: I think in Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday night at Fenway Park, the 2013 St. Louis Cardinals were somehow possessed by their baseball forefathers of 100 years ago. Really. Think about it: The 2013 Cardinals arrived as the National League representative in this World Series with a sterling reputation and a vast reservoir of respect, having just vanquished the talented Dodgers with a combination of a deep lineup, a deeper bullpen, and a starting rotation led by true ace Adam Wainwright . So what happens when they finally take the field? The Cardinals make three errors, botch a popup to the pitcher, and Wainwright, a strike-t ...
berita hari ini : Early offense and Lester's arm gives Red Sox Game 1 - Fox News Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Napoli staked Jon Lester to an early lead in Game 1 of the World Series and the Red Sox lefty did the rest. Lester limited the St. Louis Cardinals to five hits and struck out eight over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as Boston took the opener of the Fall Classic, 8-1, in front of an approving crowd at Fenway Park. The Red Sox jumped on Adam Wainwright early via Napoli's three-run double in the first inning, and David Ortiz added a home run and three RBI in the rout -- Boston's ninth straight World Series victory. St. Louis did not record an extra-base hit against Lester (1-0), committed three errors and lost All-Star slugger Carlos Beltran to a right rib contusion in the second inning when the right fielder robbed Ortiz of a grand slam. Wainwright (0-1) only lasted five frames after getting touched for five runs -- three earned -- on six hits for the NL champs, whose only offensive came on Matt ...
Boston Red Sox win game 1, thanks 2 David Ortiz and Jon Lester ..World Series is ON..back 2moro in Fenway Park..
Finally, time to get serious for the Series. Game 1, Fenway Park, Boston, Mass. *:07 PM on Fox. The Weather channel is calling for 60 chance of light showers between 4 PM and 10 PM. But, as most of us know, Weathermen can't even bat the Mendoza Line. (That is .200 or 20% for those uninitiated.) Starters tonight are Adam Wainwright for the Cardinals. Wainwright is a 6'7" right-hander who is the Cards Ace. He was 19-9 in regular season (2-1 post season) with 294 SO, 35 BB and 2.94 ERA. The Sawx counter with Jon Lester their 6'4" portsider. Lester was 15-8 (2-1 post season) with 177 SOs, 67 BBs and 3.75 ERA. It's A.L. Ball Yard so the DH is alive. Papi for the Sox and it looks like Alan Craig is back for the Cards, just in time to get some time at DH. The last time the Cards and the Sox met in the World Series was in 2004, the Red Sox swept the Redbirds 4-0. The rosters of both teams are almost completely different this time around. The Red Sox only have one person on the 2013 team who was also ...
On Wednesday, Jon Lester will become first lefty starter ever to start Game 1 of World Series at Fenway Park.
berita hari ini : Tigers Lose No-Hit Bid but Not Game - New York Times BOSTON — Anibal Sanchez was once a prospect blazing a path toward Fenway Park, toward postseason glory, toward the spoils that eventually went to Jon Lester, his teammate in 2005 on the Class AA Portland Sea Dogs, a Red Sox affiliate. They shared a rotation and visions of a bright future with the Red Sox, rising in lock step, but their paths ultimately diverged. Sanchez was traded. Lester was promoted. They had little in common beyond that summer in Maine. Their link was rejoined Saturday night, but Lester now has a more ignominious recognition: he was the losing pitcher in a 1-0 win by Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, a pitching gem that very nearly made its way into the record books. Daniel Nava singled with one out in the ninth inning to end the bid by five Tigers pitchers to throw the third postseason no-hitter. But when it was finished, they struck out 17 Red Sox, tying Bob Gib ...
SO happy to be with my elegantly goofy intelligent creative fun daughters Noelle & Gertrude this weekend...VERY excited to watch game 1 of the ALCS, Red Sox vs. Detroit at Fenway Park. (Jon Lester vs. Anibal Sanchez - whom Boston traded along w Hanley Ramirez to the Marlins back in 2007 to acquire Josh Beckett & Mike Lowell who both helped Boston to win the '07 World Series Championship and Lowell was even the MVP). Interesting how things come around... Hanley is in the NLCS with the Dodgers and here Sanchez will be the game 1 starter for the Tigers. VERY, VERY important game to win tonight with Scherzer and Verlander waiting in the wings to face Buchholz and Lackey!! SO awesome to be watching the Red Sox in October!!
ALDS Red Sox Moore (left) and Jon Lester will open the ALDS on Friday afternoon, weather permitting. (USATSI) Who has the edge? Pirates-Cardinals | Dodgers-Braves | Tigers-A's | Rays-Red Sox After a week-long layoff, the Red Sox are finally ready to get the playoffs started. They've been holding intra-squad scrimmages to stay sharp while the Rays have been playing for their season, first in Monday's tiebreaker game against the Rangers and then in Wednesday's AL wild-card game against the Indians. Tampa Bay won both do-or-die games to advance to the best-of-five ALDS. Needless to say, the two AL East rivals are very familiar with each other. The Red Sox won 12 of 19 head-to-head meetings with the Rays this season, including six of nine games at Fenway Park. This series will open in Boston -- the Red Sox finished with the best record in the AL and have home-field advantage throughout the postseason -- at 3:07pm ET on Friday. The weather.com hourly forecast isn't good at all. It has been raining in Boston fo ...
Game over, Red Sox beat the Orioles 3-1. For the first time since the 2009, the Red Sox are playoff-bound. John Lackey put the team on his back and pitched an incredible complete game, taking a no-hitter into the 7th inning. Stephen Drew hit a two-run shot in the 2nd inning. Dustin Pedroia followed up with an RBI single. John Lackey (10-12) got the win: 9 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 8 K. The Red Sox next task will be to clinch the AL East. And if the Rangers hold on to beat the Rays, the Red Sox can accomplish this as early as tomorrow night. There's no better way to enjoy a Friday night than watching the Red Sox win the AL East in front of their home fans at Fenway Park. It would bring back such great memories from 2007. The Blue Jays are coming to town. Jon Lester will be on the mound tomorrow night. First pitch is at 7:10. On NESN and WEEI radio. Go Sox!
Jon Lester pitched eight strong innings on Saturday afternoon as the Red Sox beat the New York Yankees, 5-1, before a sellout crowd of 37,510 at Fenway Park. Lester (14-8) allowed one run on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts. The lefthander is 6-2 with a 2.38 earned run average in 11 sta...
Jon Lester the lefthander threw eight strong innings and sent a clear message that he wants to be the Game 1 starter when the bunting comes out of storage at Fenway Park.
Road wins at Fenway Park are rare. It’s even harder to do when Jon Lester gives up only 3 hits over 8 innings:
The last playoff game at Fenway Park was Oct. 11, 2009. That's just about four years ago. Tuesday night offered a compelling reminder of what the Red Sox and their fans have been missing — and what may be to come. That's what the 2-1 victory against the Tigers and Max Scherzer felt like. "That was a lot of fun,” David Ross said. “The crowd and playing [the Tigers] made it kind of a little playoff atmosphere. The crowd was really into it and I think the guys were excited." Jon Lester pitched like a guy who should start Game 1 of the playoffs. The Detroit lineup was an aggregate .414 against him and Lester allowed one run over seven innings. He struck out a season high nine without a walk. Lester (13-8) has a 2.41 earned run average in nine starts since the All-Star break. Over 59.2 innings he has walked 15 and struck out 51 and regained the form he showed in April and May. “Powerful, a lot of strikes,” manager John Farrell said. “Over the last probably three or four starts his cutter has come b ...
Lots of innings, little luck for pitcher Ryan Dempster this season: Ryan Dempster has done his part. He and Jon Lester are the only Sox starters to make all of their starts this season and his 89.1 innings are second on the team. “He’s the pitcher we fully anticipated when we signed him,” Sox manager John Farrell said. But the expected success hasn’t followed. Dempster pitched effectively for six innings on Wednesday night, putting the Sox in a position to win. But the result was a 6-2 loss against the Tampa Bay Rays before a crowd of 35,710 at Fenway Park. Dempster is 4-8 and the Sox are 6-9 in the games he has started. The Sox are 16 games over .500 in games starter by Lester, Clay Buchholz, Felix Doubront and John Lackey. “I just wish we were winning more of the games that I’m starting,” Dempster said. “That’s all I care about, is the day I pitch that we win and we’re not winning those right now.” Wednesday marked the 11th time the Sox have scored three or less runs with Dempster ...
An off-year for Jon Lester is the understatement of the century, but Red Sox Nation has to be very excited with the recent results. Over the last 4 starts, Lester has gone 6 or more innings in each and never allowed more than 4 runs, walking just 6 while striking out 29 (nearly 5k/bb). While he has been rewarded with just the one win last night, the results are continuing to improve. His line away from Fenway is actually quite good. In 10 games, he is 4-2 with a 3.17 ERA. He also has just 18 walks and 62 strikeouts. In comparison, at Fenway Park, Lester is 2-8 with a 6.83 ERA and 26 walks to 67 strikeouts. The pressure of Red Sox Nation may have gotten under his skin just a bit after the 2011 collapse.
Though Jon Lester has indeed been bad this year, he has just over a 3.33 ERA away from Fenway Park. Today he will look to continue his stretch of better starts at Progressive Field in Cleveland where he has never recorded a loss. Jon Lester, you are like Han Solo right now. You are our only hope.
Once again, Jon Lester maybe deserved to win Tuesday night at Fenway Park against the Rang
Rangers had a Bad Night in the Opener at Fenway Park losing 9-2 to the Red Sox. Darvish Struggles continue giving up 6 Runs in 6 2/3 Innings. Strange thing was He struck out 9 Batters but gave up 11 Hits and Walked 4. Even with his stuff command within the Strike Zone continues to be a issue. Beltre Homered for one of the Rangers Two Runs. Rangers now 63-45. Ryan Dempster goes tomorrow night against Jon Lester. Need to bounce back. Go Rangers.
Fearful prediiction for tonight: I will see Josh Willingham launch at least two homers off Jon Lester at Fenway Park.
Toronto Blue Jays' Brett Lawrie slides safely into home before the tag from Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamachia in the eighth inning at Fenway Park. Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester gave up 11 runs, including four home runs, as the Blue Jays won 15-7.
