    Someone elsewhere compared Lester to Tim Hudson, and I think that's a decent comp.

    I respect that lone yes vote amidst 20 no votes. Pretty cool that Jon Lester is a member of RJ. Did anyone know that?

    Ok, two bad decisions should not beget another.

    My point is, Lester isn't too far off. He might not get in, but he'll probably sit on the ballot for a number of years.
    Also should not have gotten in and we should really reconsider these silly old timers' votes or whatever they are that keep getting these marginal players elected.
    I think the tragedy is that we have a Congress with a Senate that has a minority of misguided senators who will use the filibuster to keep the majority of people from even voting. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963
