Lester AL Pitcher Of The Month...Drew, Lowell Might Play In Anaheim

Jon Lester was named American League Pitcher of the Month (Sept.) for the second time this year. In September, he was 4-1 with a sparkling ERA of 2.17. He struck out 28 and walked 14. And the buzz around Boston and all of Red Sox Nation is one of hope and eternal faith. As for Josh Beckett, no news is good news, I guess. He will throw on the sidelines Thursday in preparation for his Sunday Fenway Park start. I have a funny feeling that he'll be fine and the Sox will have split the first two games in California, winning game one and falling short in game two. But, as Bruce (the Boss, who is playing the Super Bowl halftime show-WITH the E Street Band. How great is that?) would say..."living in the future and none of this has happened yet." Here are a couple comments about Josh, Daisuke and Jon...

"We love what Beckett can do and we respect what Beckett can do," Francona said Monday. "We're starting to get that feeling about Lester."

"You want Josh Beckett to go for you," Kevin Youkilis said, "but to start up with Jon Lester and Dice-K isn't too bad either."

Peter here, and I agree with Youk...we'll be fine, although the Red Sox had quite the losing record against the Halos in 2008. But when Ocober slides in, the slate is erased and sparklingly clean, almost virgin. Right now on this Tuesday morning, the word is faith, faith in the Boston Red Sox, OUR team. Click on the title for more on everything, enjoy your Tuesday and as always, BE WELL.
