Thread: 4/19 Lefty Lester vs. The Lone Rangers

  1. #1

    4/19 Lefty Lester vs. The Lone Rangers

    Teams: Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox
    Location: Fenway Park, Boston
    Date/Time: April 19, 2008 at 7:05pm EST
    TV: NESN, MLBtv, FOX(?)
    Starting Pitchers:


    #31 Jon Lester, LHP (1-2, 5.31)
    #31 Jason Jennings, RHP (0-3, 8.79)

    Scouting Report:
    Rangers: Jennings has lost all three starts this season, and he allowed six earned runs in 4 2/3 innings on Monday. When manager Ron Washington was asked whether he was concerned, he said, "Not yet. The next time it?s time to give him the ball, we'll give it to him." Jennings has a 2-0 career record against the Red Sox, but he hasn?t pitched against them since 2004. He won his only start at Fenway Park, allowing three hits and no runs in seven innings -- but that was on June 11, 2002. Jennings was 16-8 that season.

    Red Sox: Lester is growing frustrated with his inability to pitch deep into games. Control continues to be the problem. In his last start, Lester walked five and allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings. He threw 97 pitches, 55 of which were strikes. This will be Lester's first start against the Rangers since his Major League debut in June 2006. In that game, Lester gave up five hits and three runs over 4 1/3 innings.
    I'ma go with a little Boondock Saints Mojo.
    And Shepherds we shall be For thee, my Lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomeni Patri Et Fili. Spiritus Sancti.

    Now win.... FUCK ASS.

    Thanks

    On a sad note, former Red Sox catcher John Marzano (parts of 1988-1992) has been found dead. He was just 45 years old, cause is unknown.

    I think the Cowboys might have the edge in this one, but the Patriots do have some firepower. Better keep an eye on Owens.

    Amazing. Belt-high fastballs get hit for HRs. Who would have figured?

    Lester was throwing hard, but as usual he couldnt locate.

    Ellsbury is starting to make it hard for Tito to keep him out of the lineup.

    I guess this is why Lester walks people.
