''It was quite possibly the most important start by a Red Sox pitcher so far this season.''
No, Eric Wilbur isn't writing about Matsuzaka. He's writing about Jon Lester's rehab start with the Single-A Greenville Drive. Sounds like Lester is really rounding into pretty good form in his slightly extended spring.
'' Lester hit 96 mph at one point, according to Charleston's scoreboard, and kept the young Yankees off stride.''
Eric's article is the single best piece I have read so far in '07 regarding the Sox. Good to hear how Lester is getting on for sure, but the rest of the article is even better. Definitely check it out.
