Wrapping it up from the Bronx

September

Tweet Between us, I’m a little worn out by the Joba Drama. So I’m going to skip over that. He pitched well and good for him. Now let’s see if he can do it again. A few notes for those of you still up: • Terry Francona said Jon Lester could actually make his next [...]
