Hilarious.

Jon Lester is getting settled in Chicago as the newest member of the Cubs starting rotation, and beyond calling a new city home, he's gotten a new number. Lester, who's sported No. 31 his whole career, had to go with No. 34 in Chicago because his usual number is retired for Fergie Jenkins and Greg Maddux. Regardless of the reasons, David Ortiz had some fun with it.
