2012 - Jon Lester 5-8 22 21 2 0 0 0 126.1 142 83 77 18 40 106 5.49 1.44

It hasn't exactly been a Lester-esque season, but if you believe the Boston media they think Lester "is worth saving". As if there was a question. People are so displeased about the Red Sox this year, some people actually think Lester is part of the problem. Silly people. Of course, Boston's rational fans know better.

His changeup has still worked this season, but his fastball and cutter haven't been nearly as effective. Let's see how that plays out tonight.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Samuel Deduno 2-0 4 4 0 0 0 0 23.0 20 9 8 3 16 18 3.13 1.57

Turns out that Deduno actually has some pretty good stuff, and I'm looking forward to seeing it in person tonight. He's stranded 85% of his base runners, which is a number that will definitely come down as his sample size broadens, so if he'd like to start walking fewer batters soon that would help a lot. On the plus side roughly half of the balls put into play against him are grounders. He's going to need that tonight, and he's going to be exposed tonight if he doesn't get his command under some semblance of control, too. Here's hoping.
