"What I thought he did so effectively was that he made them respect all of his pitches. The slow breaking ball, his cutter, his fastball, his four-seamer. You can't sit on one pitch, and he threw them all for strikes. Looks like his fastball has got a little bit -- whatever it registers on the gun -- it's got that last couple feet that it keeps going, and when it's getting to the hitter and Tek [catcher Jason Varitek] it's got a little finish on it. It looked like to me the game slowed down for him a little bit tonight, and that's good." -- 6.21.06, Tito Francona on Lester
