Cancer Survivor Pitches No-Hitter...


Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester threw a no-hitter tonight against the Kansas City Royals. In 2006 Lester was diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma but after successful treatment returned to pitch the final game of the World Series last year. He is the second pitcher in the history of baseball to no-hit the Royals, the other was Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan. Congratulations Jon!

Krep, the non-story is your beloved Yankees. I'm sorry you have to sit by and watch the Red Sox draft winners who can actually play at the major league level. It must sting. The Red Sox stick by their young players and allow them to mature instead of selling them for the Gary Sheffields of the game.

We aquired a 20 game winner in Beckett and a World Series MVP in Lowell. Your right that was a shitty trade.
