Jon Lester and the Red Sox took a pounding last night at Fenway Park, falling 9-1 to the Indians. After it was stated and speculated all day that Jacoby Ellsbury would get booed in his return to the lineup, Ellsbury actually received a very strong ovation in his first at-bat.

  1. Every single show I listen to needs to stop the endless whining about Pink Hats. I hate them too, but they've started to equate EVERY RED SOX FAN WITH A PINK HAT!
