Lefty battle!

Tonight finds the Sox and Rays throwing arguably their best pitchers: Jon Lester and David Price. They seem to be cut from a similar mold: both lefties with overpowering fastballs and excellent off-speed pitches.

As a sox fan, I appreciate the talents of David Price, but I will never forget that he is the reason the Sox didn’t go to the World Series in 2008 (if you’ll remember, he stonewalled the Sox in Game 7 of the 2008 ALCS). The Red Sox will need to bring it tonight if they want to be successful against him.

Jon Lester looks to build momentum against a Rays team that was unstoppable offensively last night. If the Sox are to start digging their way out of this 2-8 start to the season, it falls on Lester to begin the process.
