A GOOD GUY in Baseball!

Larry Johnson - famed Sports Cartoonist hales the return of Jon Lester to the bump for Sox!

Jon Lesters' long 11 month journey back to baseball was accomplished at the Jake Monday night! Whattaguy!!!! Lester pitched 7 strong and allowed a 2 run Homer, but was otherwise brilliant as we won his 8th Major League game. His Mom & Dad and hundreds of thousands of members of Red Sox Nation were there to cheer him on. Jon is a strong addition to an already solid pitching staff, which has helped bring the Red Sox to the top of major League baseball.

I am so thrilled to see this story unfold in light of all the BAD NEWS that generates in professional baseball and sports of late. Jon Lester has a long career ahead, but this event in his personal history will be one Sox Event we will not soon forget.
