Lester's No Longer an Ace?
John Lester is not consistently pitching like the ace that we all think that he is. I no longer pencil in a win when I hear that he's pitching. I don't have the stats in front of me, but it seems to me like he's throwing less strikes, walking more batters, and giving up more HRs than he did last year. I keep hoping that he'll get better with the warm weather but it doesn't get any warmer than it is at Fenway tonight and he got rocked for seven runs. What do you think?
