Everything is coming up Jon Lester this weekend.
Saturday, Lester bounced back from a rough first inning to lead the Cubs to a 9-4 win over the Cardinals. Following Sunday's game, the team will pay homage to the big left-hander, holding a themed road trip in which they will don Lester-esque attire.
Photos and videos of several players' outfits have begun circulating on social media. As a warning, there might be no way to defeat Anthony Rizzo's outfit:https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/1137932328733499392

Themed road trips are nothing new under Joe Maddon on the North Side. Last season, the Cubs held a Pedro Strop-inspired road trip; this season, they donned basketball jerseys in homage to the NBA Finals.
