Joe Girardi managing to lose the All Star Game for the first time in, I don’t know how many years, won’t be the story around here. In today’s Herald, Steve Buckley reports on the unexpected answer Jon Lester gave when asked if he and Hanley ever talked over pizza about playing together in the All Star Game:

“I’d have a better chance of being struck by lightning than me and him getting a pizza together,” Lester said. “You can take that for what it’s worth. But there was no chance on God’s green earth that I was getting a pizza with him.”

Say what? I think the question was intended to be a dreamy “what if” type of thing, not a firestarter. Looking forward to more on this.
