Cubs sign Jon Lester
Thursday December 11th, 2014

Jon Lester signed a deal with the Cubs late Tuesday night, despite Red Sox fans' hopes that he would return to Boston. 

Lester has been busy during his first day in Cubbie Blue, replying everyone—no, seriously, everyone—who tweeted at him about his decision to sign with Chicago, even the haters.
