Write this down: If Joel Pineiro Bread shuts down the Sox offense today, I will eat my Manny Ramirez T-shirt. Actually eat it, probably buffet style with some sides and at least one dessert. The Force is strong in Lester, and I do believe that we shall kick it 2004 World Series style this afternoon. Assuming, of course, that Fenway isn’t reduced to ashes by thunder and lightning.
Jon Lester: 6-3, 3.18
Johan Santana: 7-5, 3.04
Granted, Santana’s playing for the truly abhorrent Mets. But… just sayin’
