What about Jon Lester?

man, after being diagnosed with cancer last August, hes back in the big leagues! way to go!!!!

Update:

man, my sox better not even consider trading Lester. Hes surely a starter for at least 10 years. Add that to Dice k and beckett, pretty young, which will grow awesome as seasons go on and they get more experience, Also I sense Gabbard will be up next season as well. Hes finished for this season i suspect with his nice 4-0 Record. LETS GO RED SOX!

    I am so happy for him! It really was devastating to hear about his cancer and I am thrilled for him and his family by what he has been able to do! Not only beat the cancer but, make a big league comeback..Truly phenomenal! Did you see his parents in the stands when he pitched Monday? I was so happy for them too! I hope he continues to do well and the Red Sox keep him around for a while.

    I know! I'm so happy for him! I remember last year, when I heard he was diagnosed with cancer. I remember praying almost everyday for two weeks. When he was pronounced cancer-free, I was very happy and believed in miracles (well, for a week anyways).

    Can you believe that people are talking about trading him? I want to see Jon Lester in a Red Sox uniform his whole Major League career!

    He has a lot of guts to come back but the question is and will always be consistentcy. Schilling comes back on Monday which could either help the Red Sox or hurt them. I think the Yankees will gain ground this weekend with Kansas City coming to the Bronx while Boston goes to Seattle.

    I LOVE Lester!

    But I'm sorryto tell you...I think the Sox are gonna trade him. Personally I think they only brought him up now to showcase him so they can get a back up out fielder with a lil pop.

    I hope I'm wrong tho!

    Its a great story for a great guy.

    Haha did you see his first game back how nervous his mom was.

    :]

    As a "Sox fan", actually i only wear a red sox hat b/c i really hate the yankees...

    He would have been better off losing a testicle to cancer and joining espn.
