Holy f-cking shit! Just when I thought today couldn’t get any more awesome: Jon Lester to start Monday night in Drew Carey Town!
Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced today that Jon Lester has been recalled from Pawtucket and will start tomorrow night in Cleveland. Julian Tavarez is going to the bullpen. A roster move will be announced after the game. The easiest move available to the Sox would be to send Javier Lopez, who has options, back to Pawtucket.
Francona said that the time was right for Lester, the 23-year-old left-hander who will be returning to the Sox exactly a year after he pitched for the Sox in his home state of Washington. It was on the team’s second trip to Seattle, a month later, that Lester went to see an uncle who was a doctor, setting in motion the events that led to him being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
Man, next thing you’ll be telling me Coco’s hitting .277.
Time to get shit-tay!
