Saturday: Two Against The Rangers. Very Interesting Possible Pitching Match Ups
From the Globe....."There was no official announcement from the Red Sox, but all signs point to 22-year-old Jon Lester making his major league debut Saturday in Fenway Park, when the Red Sox play a day-night doubleheader against the Texas Rangers.
Lester was to have pitched this past Saturday for Triple A Pawtucket, but the PawSox shuffled their rotation and are holding back Lester until tonight, when he is scheduled to pitch in Indianapolis. That would put him on track to pitch Saturday along with Josh Beckett, who is scheduled to face Mike Mussina tonight in the Bronx in the first of four games against the Yankees."
***Peter here again. And I am not getting ahead of myself. I know we have 4 intense games to come with the team we, and a big part of the country, love to hate. But this upcoming debut by the rookie lefty will be exciting. Especially when you throw John Wasdin in the mix. Yep, John "home run here, home run there" Wasdin. Have fun these next few days, and yes, you'll be reading me. Thanks for your continuing visits..I love ya!!!!!
