'Big Jon' is still doing big things.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jon Lester recorded a historic 200th career win on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers.
His former batterymate and Cubs manager David Ross was cheering for him and gave him a shout-out on Instagram after the win to congratulate his buddy.
"Felt weird rooting for the Cardinals tonight! Congrats on 200, Lefthander!!"
Lester is the 119th pitcher in MLB history to register 200 wins in a career (77 with the Cubs).
“I rooted for the red team yesterday and that felt really strange,” Ross said Tuesday to the media. “I’m really happy for Jon. That was special. A lot of the coaches and the group that’s known him and been around here, everybody’s been following his progression to 200.”
Congratulations to Lester from everyone at CubsHQ.com on this tremendous achievement.
