The adorable little guy just wanted to join in the conversation about what a great outing his father had unfurled in Game 5 of the World Series to put the Red Sox one win away from going from worst to World Series-winners. The father-son tableau was fitting because Lester made cutting through the St. Louis Cardinals look like child’s play in a 3-1 win at Busch Stadium.
