Lester officially signs with Cubs, introduced by Chicago brass

Posted:
CHICAGO (AP) - Jon Lester says he believes in the Chicago Cubs' plan and is ready to try to help bring them their first championship since 1908.

Lester says "we fully buy in."

A three-time All-Star who won two World Series with Boston, he was introduced at a news conference on Monday and presented Kerry Wood's old No. 34.

Lester agreed to a $155 million, six-year contract with the Cubs at the winter meetings last week that set baseball records for largest signing bonus and biggest upfront payment.

 Chicago President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein says this "really marks the start of a transition for the Cubs."
