Right now, Jon Lester is overrated. The media has gotten caught up in the wonderful story and have made the kid out to be something he is not, which is a Major League Pitcher.

Lester should not start anytime soon. He does not deserve to be promoted. Lester has been a below average pitcher by sporting a less than 2-to-1 K/BB ratio (71/41 or 1.73) in AAA, as of last week. His record (7-2) in the Show last year is impressive. But if you are still putting stock in a pitcher’s win-loss to predict future results, I got a bridge to sell you. Lester was lucky in the bigs. He had a 60/43 or 1.40 K/BB ratio. We are talking Jason Johnson-esque – remember him. Lester is simply not ready like last summer, but unlike last year, the Sox have options.


Year-end at work, 90+ heat and AC issues will likely prevent new posts until next week when I come back from being on top of the Monster on Sunday!
