It's More Than a Game When Lester Returns Tonight
Welcome Back Jon
Shaughnessy: Happy to Deliver Good News
"Lester was 7-2 with a 4.76 ERA when cancer put his life in danger and his talent on the shelf last season. He returns to the big leagues intent on showing he belongs, breaking out of the glass bottle that's been home for 11 months. He takes the ball representing the Red Sox and millions of families who've been touched by cancer.
" 'It's the ultimate human interest story and he deserves good things to happen,' said [Red Sox GM Theo] Epstein.
"Tonight all of us are Red Sox fans." -- 7.23.07, Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
