Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Pretty horrible news regarding Jon Lester.

He's been diagnosed with Anaplastic Lymphoma. He'll probably begin chemotherapy in the next week.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Wow, that sucks. There are worse things one can be diagnosed with, but anything involving chemo is not something that's fun to deal with. I don't know how long he'll have to be on chemo, but I'd guess he won't be pitching next year. What an unfortunate thing to happen at so young in a promising career. At least they caught it early as it isn't really live threatening at this point.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Hats off to Kyle Snyder.

His curveball is really nasty tonight. Great job in keeping hitters off balance.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It's now truly not to be believed.

Papelbon exits the game with an apparent shoulder injury.

I have never really seen a team in my short years of watching baseball, hit so hard with injuries.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Dear God help us... what else could go wrong with the health of this team?? This by no means is to compare to Jon Lester - God bless man, we're all rooting for you - but now Papelbon walks off to an eery silence. Frankly I'm scared to even think what that could have been...

It's just gotten absurd, and aside from Manny, these aren't nagging injuries. Two guys in the hospital, one of which will be going back for treatment, and now our best pitcher looks like he's just shut himself down. I mean what do you do at this point?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Please, please, please, please, please be a pectoral strain.

And like it's been stated before, best wishes to Jon and the entire Lester family.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

With the way our luck has been, I would be absolutely shocked if this is anything less than a torn rotator cuff.
