Worst Kept Sox Secret: Lester To Open In NY

Once & Future Ace
Surprising absolutely nobody, Red Sox manager John Farrell announced this morning that Jon Lester will open the season on Monday at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. Lester has had a ridiculously good Spring on the mound, going 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA. Lester will be followed in the rotation by Clay Buchholz, Ryan Dempster, Felix Doubront and John Lackey. Buchholz will pitch the home opener on April 8th.
