It was a Trade Deadline Day Cubs fans will never forget.

Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Craig Kimbrel and Javy Baez all gone within 24 hours.

Another piece of the 2016 Cubs World Series team was traded on Friday when the Nationals traded former Cubs ace Jon Lester to the Cardinals in exchange for outfielder Lane Thomas.

It should be an interesting look to see Lester in a Cardinals jersey after so many years being a rival of them with the Cubs.

During his time with the Cubs, he was 77-44 with a 3.64 ERA and was a two-time All-Star. He even finished second in the National League CY Young voting in 2016.

Lester was 3-5 with 5.02 ERA in 16 starts with the Nationals this season.
