(AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)Jon Lester could tell something wasn’t right. “There would be times where I would run out in the fifth, sixth, seventh inning and feel like I hit a brick wall. “Just thinking that maybe I needed to do a little extra in the weight room. “The big thing is kind of your brain telling you: You can do something or you want to do something. “It’s like, ‘OK, if I miss one (start), they’ll be able to pick me up,’” Lester said.
