Jon Lester is not having a lot of fun this season. Here he is after yesterday’s game:
“It seems like its just ‘Groundhog Day,’ everyday,” said Lester. “In every start for me I just can’t seem to get a break. I can speak for myself that it aggravates the piss out of me. I hate going out there and losing regardless if I’m pitching or not. I know guys (in the clubhouse) are frustrated and rightly so.”
I get his frustration, but if it was really like “Groundhog Day,” by now Lester would have learned from what happens every day, memorized the patterns and would be on a string of throwing multiple consecutive perfect games. At least after the suicide attempts all proved fruitless.
