Jon Lester Picked A Runner Off Of First Base


Tommy Pham of the Cardinals was daring Jon Lester to throw over with a lead that got up to 20 feet off of the first base bag.  Even with the huge lead he seemed to be caught off guard when Lester actually threw over.

If you're going to take a 20 foot lead, even on Lester, you have to expect a throw at some point.  Pham should have just taken off for second, because Lester had to lob it over to get to Sizzle Chest.

It wasn't the most well executed pick off, but it got the job done.
