Lester Focused On Cardinals In Game 5, Not Glove Talk
" BOSTON (CBS) – After Jon Lester shut down the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series, the attention wasn’t on the left-hander’s magnificent 7 2/3 innings of work.

Instead, the focus was on his glove, courtesy of a Cardinal’s minor league pitcher who wondered on Twitter if Lester had a little extra help in shutting down the Cardinals.

That chatter didn’t last long, as Lester explained that the “foreign substance” seen on his glove was rosin used to help his grip. MLB said nothing conclusive could be drawn from the incident, and the Cardinals themselves downplayed it.

Lester knows there will be some more focus on his glove and hand when he takes the mound for Boston in Monday night’s Game 5, but all the lefty will be focused on is giving his team another lead in the World Series.

“I’m sure there’s going to be focus on my glove and focus on my hands and what I’m doing, but I’ve got to worry about the Cardinals.  If I’m worried about what people are looking at, I’m worried about the wrong things,” Lester said prior to Boston’s 4-2 win in Game 4 "
