With Jon Back, the Rotation Looks Lesterrific

Globe: It's Easy as 1-2-3

"We'll just build from here and get stronger as camp goes on, and if the velocity's not there, we'll build it back up to normal. I was just trying to get a feel. It's hard early on when you're facing hitters, you try to do too much with your offspeed stuff. I was just trying to get a feel for it and loop a couple up there and see if they'll swing at them.

I think I'm still building it back up from last season, but I think I'm right about 85-90 percent. Getting close, starting to feel a little more comfortable with my body and how things are flowing." -- 3.5.07, Jon Lester after his comeback start
