Red Sox go down with sub

Playing in front of Jon Lester and John Lackey for perhaps the last time, the Red Sox lost another baseball game last night, 6-1, to the Blue Jays.Brandon Workman, who started in place of Lester on the eve of today’s trading deadline, was the victim of his own ineffectiveness and poor defense. He allowed four walks and four hits in five innings, but only two of the five runs he allowed were earned.The Red Sox have lost eight of their last nine games.Toward the end of the game, half-hearted chants of “Jonny Lester” could be heard.

End near for Jon Lester, John Lackey at trade deadline?

At 7:10 last night, some 21 hours before the non-waiver trade deadline, Jon Lester — John Lackey, too, for that matter — was still dressed in his Red Sox colors, still on the roster and still standing in the home dugout at Fenway Park even as Brandon Workman, called up to take his start, threw the first pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays.Three hours later, after the Sox had lost for the eighth time in nine games, 6-1, Lester and Lackey were still active members of the team, their lockers intact, without any overt signs that a deal was imminent.

MLB trade rumors: Orioles' attempts to land Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester stall

Lester, Lackey each have several suitors head of Thursday's trade deadline.

Rapid Reaction: Blue Jays 6, Red Sox 1

BOSTON -- Stepping into the shoes of Jon Lester was never going to be an easy task for Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Unfortunately for Workman, he didn't make that job any easier on himself, issuing a career-high four walks and allowing five runs (two earned) in the Red Sox's 6-1 loss to the Blue Jays. Recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket following Felix Doubront being traded to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday afternoon, Workman made Lester's scheduled start as Thursday's trade deadline approaches.

'Hey, I must be pretty good'

BOSTON—Back in more innocent times, when Seth Levinson was just beginning negotiations in the spring with the Red Sox on a contract extension for pitcher Jon Lester that most everyone assumed would arrive at a happy outcome, he gave his client a book he’d assembled for Lester’s personal enjoyment. The book not only contained a recitation of Lester’s career accomplishments, but gave his performance some historical context, how the Sox left-handed matched up against some of the best pitchers in the game.
