    Why Can't Jon Lester throw to 1st base?

    its easy to steal off of him you can get as big of a lead as you want he just wont throw to first base! explanation for thiis?

    I'll answer it for everyone

    Lester has allowed 5 sb's in 9 starts. 3 guys have been caught stealing


    His teammate Jake Arrieta, who allows very little baserunners:

    8 sb's and only 1 caught stealing in 10 starts

    This is absurd...managers take advantage of every edge they can find.
    Lester makes millions...I have no pity on him and would be running all day on him...make him pay up for a specialist to help him or make him work to overcome this. This all coming from a pretty nice guy...and a die - hard Cubs fan.

    He is left handed. Hard to throw a ball from a left hand to a left glove with the 1st base behind your throwing hand. This is common knowledge guys.
