Red Sox: Lester dazzled the Fenway faithful in his return home after rehabilitation from cancer, throwing seven innings of two-hit ball against Tampa Bay. He had started his previous four games on the road. This time, he'll pack his bags for Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, where he'll face the Devil Rays for the second time in less than a week. In 13 2/3 career innings against Tampa, Lester has allowed five earned runs and just eight hits.

Devil Rays: Sonnanstine snapped an eight-decision losing skid Wednesday afternoon with a quality start against the Red Sox in which he allowed three runs on four hits in 6 2/3 innings. The Rays right-hander went back to what made him successful earlier in the season by using his fastball to set up his other pitches while locating away from the middle of the plate. He is 0-4 with a 6.08 ERA at Tropicana Field.

To those of you who actually stop by, I Know I know, I let you down for a few games. The truth is that I have had some problems being able to type. Ever since the "incident" it has been either a tingling or numbness in the left hand. This makes it hard to really blog or do any other type of things on the computer. Makes it hard to touch type and I really must double check everything.

No batting breakdowns or pitcher comparisons today. The only thing I have to say is that the Sox need to put down the hammer. You can not count on any team to help vs the Yankees. Just win games boys, just win games.

In case you've forgotton, Sonnanstine is the guy who made like Cy "freaking" Young last week. Let's bring out the bats tonight boys.

♊ - When all else fails, get a bigger hammer!
