Nobody seemed to know where John called home, just drifted into town and stayed all alone. He didn’t say much, he kinda stayed quiet and shy. And if you spoke at all, you just said ‘hi’ to Big John. -Jimmy Dean
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Just a little quick one. A little lickety-split one. A just so you know I know a little bit one. I know it is Brett Haber who always says, “Go to your room!” I know Big Jon Lester sent the first 19 Rangers batters he faced to their rooms. I know Big Jon Lester went the distance. I also know it was the most consecutive batters retired from the start of a game by a Boston pitcher since Sept. 10, 1991. Wanna know who that other guy is? Huh? Do ya? Sure ya do. That guy was none other than Rocket Roger Clemens. Yowza! Pre-steroids. Maybe. Perhaps.
Last year, in October, I said Big Bad Jon Lester was the ace of the Big Bad Boston Red Sox. I said stuff like, “The best left-handed pitcher we’ve seen in these parts since Bruce Hurst.” Last night in a complete game victory, Jon Lester showed the world what Red Sox fans have been whispering for a while now. In a full game of work, Big Jon Lester showed the world that he is the ace of the Boston Red Sox.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
