GAME NOTES: Okay, I’m serious. The road woes need to stop with Seattle, a 60-loss team that’s effectively thrown in the towel on their season. I don’t want to hear about the Red Sox record away from Fenway or about yet another sweep last weekend. Championship-caliber teams sweep series against the worst team in baseball, road, home or on the moon. Tonight, it starts with Jon Lester back home against lefty Jarrod Washburn. Winning is a good idea.
