The Sox kept winning, and onward rolled the Lord of the Red Sox Mojo. Lester was due to pitch in his last start before being moved to the bullpen for the playoffs. Later Wake strained something and was unable to pitch in the world series so Lester got his start. I had almost cast Lester as Farimir...but there was a major scene with Eowyn that I had rolling about in my head, and Lester fit that story better...
"Lord of the Red Sox" Mojo presents...
Know your role rookie!
Lester: Damn it! Lowell! I just heard I'm being moved to the bullpen for the playoffs.
Lowell: That is an honorable role.
Lester: This is because I'm a......rookie isn't it.
Lowell: OK, now you're just being silly.
Lester: To sit there, not knowing if and when I will be called upon. I'm not even sure of what situation I'll be brought in for. What kind of renown is that?
Lowell: My Lad, there may come a time for valor without renown. Who will Red Sox Nation look to should we need help early in a game?
Lester: Let me start. I know I can win a game for us.
Lowell: It's not my call. Look at it this way. I know you were not here in '04, heck neither was I. But who played one of the biggest parts in that playoff run. Derek Freakin' Lowe.
Lowell: (Ignores D-Lowe) Start the playoffs in the Bullpen and ends up being the only player in the history of the game to win all 3 clinching playoff games. Go to the pen, we'll call on yah when we need yah.
Lowell: But Tonight we need your best stuff in order to keep the pressure on the Yankees.
Lester puts on ball cap.
Lester: Do not worry...for tonight we will WIN!
