Jon Lester?

Postby tuff_gong » Mon Aug 28, 2006 10:47 am

He started out pretty good, but has fizzled out lately. Any particular reason why? The Redsox not doing very well as a whole can't help, but over the last month his ERA is 7.66. Any reason to believe he can turn it around?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

He is better than a 7.66 ERA but he isn't a #1 or #2 type pitcher. He doesn't have a single dominate pitch.... though I guess he can hit 94 or so with his 4 seamer but the couple games I've saw him pitch he never threw it. I'd say he is a #3 or #4 on a good team with around 4.00-4.50 ERA and around 1.25-1.35 WHIP.

I think he is a little overrated, especially pitching in the AL East.

I am not a stat geek but i am a Sox fan. It seems like he doesn't get many short innings and that he doesn't have an out pitch. I am a fan of his and we need a lefty but he's not a Glavine type or an RJ type. He is somewhere in between and quite frankly doesn't scare any one. Maybe he misses Varitek i don't know.
