Lester to start opening night April 5 vs Cardinals
Cubs manager Joe Maddon confirmed Monday what he had earlier indicated about Chicago's new ace. Lester signed a six-year, $155 million contract with the Cubs in December.
''I don't want to be disingenuous,'' Maddon said. ''What's obvious is obvious. But things can change. The competition around here is unbelievable on so many different levels.''
