    Lester looks good, I hope he can go deep.

    Yes, I know how the stats work. Clearly you don't. We are done here. Enjoy your viewing experience and have a wonderful evening.

    Am I the only one surprised Lester has been this good so far this season? I thought the way he looked last season, his loss of velocity, final year of the contract, I was thinking 5th starter type expectations. Really impressed.

    I am totally with you, last year I was very worried and thought this year would be even worse. However, he has been a pleasant surprise this year.

    Was something wrong with Plutko? I am surprised they pulled him so quickly.

    I don't think Lester is a bad pitcher right now, he's likely at least a capable backend starter, but it's definitely a case of results being better than his talent so far this year.

    Just a few numbers for the season:
    .109 BABIP against, 100% strand rate, 5.3% HR/FB. His xFIP is 5.03 for a reason.

    I thought only Maddon pulls starters early?

    Plutko hasn't been a starter this year and isn't stretched out, that's why he was pulled.

    Has Lester looked better today? Like, has he actually missed some bats? I missed the first 5 innings. Kinda passed out after having meetings all day.

    He's been fine. Moreso lots of weak contact than missing lots of bats. The Indians don't have a very good lineup or I think he'd probably be getting hit harder.
