"NO," WOULD HAVE BEEN SUFFICIENT:
Jon Lester Doesn't Care to Share Pizza With Hanley Ramirez (Josh Alper, 7/14/10, FanHouse)
Jon Lester and Hanley Ramirez were once teammates in the Red Sox minor league system but were on opposite sides of the All-Star Game on Tuesday night. Lester retired Ramirez on a bouncer back to the mound and after the game he was asked if he and Ramirez had ever gone out for pizza and fantasized about being in the Midsummer Classic while they were on their way up the baseball ladder.
It's a silly question, but Lester didn't have a particularly jokey response.
"I'd have a better chance of being struck by lightning than me and him getting a pizza together," Lester said. "You can take that for what it's worth. But there was no chance on God's green earth that I was getting a pizza with him."
