FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Jon Lester talked about being honored to be named the Red Sox Opening Day starter for a second straight year, getting the chance to go up against Detroit's Justin Verlander April 5 in Detroit.
Lester said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told him of the decision "a couple of days ago," following his last start, Friday. Valentine said earlier in the day that he had made the choice after being urged by Josh Beckett during a Jan. 1 meeting to give the lefty the honor.
"I think it’s in the back of everybody’s mind," said Lester when asked if he had thought about the possibility of starting another Opening Day. "Whether or not I pitch the first game or the fifth game, it doesn’t matter to me. I just want to pitch and compete. All the guys in our rotation are worthy enough to pitch Opening Day.

The Bruins got an encouraging sign Monday morning when forward Rich Peverley, who is coming back from a sprained right knee, took part in the team's morning skate. It was Peverley's first time participating in a practice with teammates since suffering his injury on Feb. 15, and he could be closing in on a return to the lineup.
"Day-to-day," coach Claude Julien said of Peverley's status. "There's no exact time for when he's going to start playing again, but he's looking better every day."
Peverley began skating on his own last Wednesday. Morning skates are non-contact practices, so taking contact will be the next step in the forward's recovery.
"He's progressed since [Wednesday]," Julien said. "When you've been off that long, you don't just come back overnight, so we're going to give him a chance and wait for our doctors to clear him."
In 49 games this season, Peverley has nine goals...
