Game 20: .500?

New, 798 comments

Please? Maybe? No? OK...

The Red Sox are going for .500 tonight. It took them some four tries to reach that point last year at 20-20. Hopefully this year they're quicker about it.

For that to be the case, however, they're going to need some help from Jon Lester, who has been pretty bad in his last two outings. Can he turn things around? Can the Sox get to Jake Peavy? Is Marlon Byrd actually hitting .318 with the Sox?
