Rather than acquiring prospects for Jon Lester, the Red Sox nab slugger Yoenis Cespedes from the A's for Lester and Jonny Gomes.
Yoenis Cespedes provides something -- a middle-of-the-order bat -- that the Red Sox are sorely lacking. And there's still a chance they could re-sign Jon Lester.
John Farrell trusts Ben Cherington's 'clear-cut plan to get [the Red Sox] back to [being] a team that will contend.'
2yIt's rare that the two previous dependable starting pitchers become the two least dependable ones in one season, but that seems to be the case with Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, and the 2012 Red Sox.
2yIt's hard to find a worse time in Jon Lester's career than now, seeing as Lester gave up a career-high 11 runs in Sunday's loss.
2yDustin Pedroia saw Jon Lester in the dumps after a rough first inning, so offered some words of encouragement to his starting pitcher. But as it turned out, Lester didn't get any better from there.
2yCody Ross will get his second straight start at designated hitter for the Red Sox.
2yDavid Ortiz will stick in Boston to receive treatment on his injured Achilles and will not travel with the Red Sox to Arlington, Tx.
2yAndrew Bailey seems to be coming along, as does his bullpen-mate Scott Atchison.
2yTwo Red Sox starters will get a break on Sunday in order to try to maintain their relative health.
