In response to redsoxdirtdog's comment:
It's amazing how PEAVED Peavy gets on the mound, yet WE LOVE HIM! We love him getting fired up!!!
Why is it so different with Lester????
I think it's because Lester fumes & pouts simultaneously, directing his anger toward the umps as opposed to being mad at himself, as with Peavy.
I love this guy!!!!
For the record..... I love Lester also! Just want to see him continue to direct that anger more constructively, as he has been doing as of late.
I was trying to nail down the difference earlier this morning and this is exactly it. Peavy gets mad, adjusts, and moves on. Lester pouts and tries to act like a tough guy towards umps. Lester wants to beat the umps. Peavy wants to beat the other team.
Good take! I think he perseverates on the umps, while Peavy perseverates on what he's doing wrong in not hitting his spots.
Having said that, I think Lester is beginning to get it, and has certainly looked much better as of late.
So many RS fans on this board were decrying our "lack of pitching?"
With Peavy, Lester, Lackey, Doubs, & a healthy Buch????? I like our chances!
