Back In Boston
Jon Lester knows that this isn't how things are supposed to work. When you pitch well and hit the ball hard, you're supposed to win games. That's why he expects the Sox to turn it around.
The debate rages on. For my money, I'm not sure it really makes any sense to keep throwing Dice-K out there when we know his limits. He's been described as the best no. 5 man in baseball, this last game notwithstanding, but I have a feeling both Alfredo Aceves and Felix Doubront could be better no. 5 men, if only for their greater consistency. Alternatively, they actually will pitch in the bullpen, while I expect Matsuzaka would walk every batter he faced; whether in protest or just because he's Daisuke I'm entirely unsure. Either way...
E:60 did their usual impressive job chronicling Ryan Westmoreland's fight to return to normalcy after his surgery. Since it was on at the same time as last night's game, here it is online.

One of the Yankees' strengths gets a little bit weaker, if not perhaps that much.

Woe is my fantasy team.
