Larry Lucchino tells Dan Shaughnessy that the Red Sox '[threw] a number out to get [contract] negotiations started' with Jon Lester, but that low-ball offer seems to have frozen the talks.
Three Thursday takeaways: Koji's better at night. Drew's much better in the field than at the plate. Vazquez better listen to Ross.
A year ago, Mike Carp seemed to get the big hit in the right spot. This season, it hasn't been the same. Given a chance Thursday, Carp makes good on his opportunity.
2yThe veteran catcher is unhappy with his playing time and the manager isn't a big fan to begin with, so it may be time for the Sox to begin to explore trade opportunities.

2yDaniel Bard has struggled with his control, but began working out of the stretch against Baltimore.
2yScott Podsednik hit a home run in his first Major League start since September 2010.
2yThings hit rock bottom against the Yankees, but Alfredo Aceves has been light out ever since.
2yThe Red Sox manager was impressed by how his team played on the just-completed road trip and on its 20-games-in-20-days stretch . . . and he made a prediction.
