Today's Starting Pitchers GS IP ERA WHIP BAA HR BB K W-L
Jon Lester - LH 25 160.2 3.25 1.30 .262 11 50 109 11-4
Jeremy Guthrie - RH 25 170.0 3.18 1.15 .235 18 45 108 10-8

Usually I'd say something about the fact that we've got a hell of a nice pitching matchup on our hands today, with young Jon Lester taking on our ace Jeremy Guthrie, two guys having similar years. But instead I just want to say that it's time to play the role of spoiler.

And I want to send a shout-out to Awesome Mike Awesome, who says Lester is better than Guthrie. I will throw all rationale to the side and just say this: To be the man, by God, you have to beat! the! man!

WOOOOOOO!
