Lester Could Get Opening Day Start

John Farrell:
It was Beckett and Dice-K, and if Dice-K did not go, it was going to be Lester sliding into that spot. We wanted to keep Tim [Wakefield] on a set path all the way to the start of the season. But now, obviously, with Josh's situation, and there's still no timetable on when his return will be, but a strong outing by Lester [Sunday] certainly keeps him in the mix for one of those two games.
Bartolo Colon is expected to start and throw about 30 pitches on Thursday against Tampa Bay. ... Julio Lugo has missed nine games with a lower back strain and there is little information on when he'll be able to play.
