Jon Lester Wins 2007 Tony Conigliaro Award

This M L B Award was established in 1990, to commemorate a player who came back from Adversity, to perform to great standards, in the Determined Spirit of Tony Conigliaro, a member of the 1967 "Impossible Dream Red Sox", who was hit in the face with a Rising Fast Ball, in a game @ Fenway Park-Boston, between the California Angels & The Red Sox, in August, 1967;

Tony C. came back in 1968 & retired in 1971, as a member of the '71 Angels;

Tony died in 1990;

Last Year, the Red Sox had a TERRIFIC Rookie Pitcher named Jon Lester, all the way through August, '06. Then, something was wrong. On September 1st, '06, Jon Lester was diagnosed with Lymphoma. He took his treatments;

On September 2nd, '06, it was supposed to be Jon's next start. I was @ Fenway, that day;

On October 28th, '07, Jon Pitched the Game of All Games. His Victory clinched the '07 World Series;

The Tony Conigliaro Award was Most-Deserved;

Rumors rampant...the Sox are now "favorites" to land Santana. I don't know what to think, except that the proposed deal is almost too good to be true.
