Lackey, Lester, Beckett Ready to Roll to Another Championship

Lester: We're All Aces. It Takes 5 to Make a First Rate Rotation

"We all are (aces). You guys can label us whatever you want but in my mind it takes five starters to win a championship. That was proven back in '07. Just different guys that took over those roles. It's going to take all of us, all six of us, the whole season and hopefully we can all take our turns and all be healthy and get into the playoffs and have a good playoff but right now we're focused on tomorrow and throwing bullpens and trying to stay healthy." -- 2.19.10, Jon Lester
