Is this a good thing?

Sort of. It's a good thing in that the young guys could be an improvement over the crappy veterans, but a bad thing in that the crappy vets are so crappy that they have to bring the young guys up. And it's not like Seanez, Tavarez, and Foulke are cheap, either.

It's pretty cool how the Sox have a nice little crop of exciting young players this year. Youkilis, Crisp, Papelbon, Beckett, and now we'll see Lester and Hansen.

What, Kyle Snyder did not get the same vote of confidence?

Has any man suffered so much abuse as Kyle Snyder?

Well then, Jon Lester...

Kyle Snyder is a God among men.

We don't need a trade. We need KEITH FOULKE TO BE FIXED

Jon Lester was good today. He was throwing strikes.

That being said, Washington helped him today by swinging, and by not making contact on some pitches. Lester need to work out some control problems.... not the "Matt Clement can't find the striek zone" problem, but "it's a strike but not where Varitek wanted it" type of control problem.

Still, he's got good velocity on the fastball and that curveball is getting people to swing. And he's throwing strikes.

Which is all I can ask for.

All I have to say about Lester: last night Rodrigo Lopez pitched 7 innings against the Nationals, giving up 1 run, walking no one, and striking out 7. Rodrigo Lopez. And I was there--he had nothing at all.

Check your email. Time is somewhat important for a variety of reasons.
