Activate Pedro!

We are now down to exactly zero reliable starters. Jon Lester botched his most important start of the year, putting the Red Sox offense in yet another early hole, as the Rays swept Boston, 9-1.

The Wild Card lead is down to 3.5 games over Tampa, who come to Fenway next Thursday for a final four-game showdown. Are we ready? Not bloody likely.

Lester, Lackey, Miller, Weiland and Wakefield will not cut it. We are in serious danger of missing the postseason—no matter what the odds-maker say.
