Former Red Sox lefty Jon Lester starts for the wild card chasing Chicago Cubs when they take on the Dodgers tonight. The game is live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket starting at 8pm.

If the playoffs began today, the Cubs would be one of the two wildcard teams in the National League.

Many Sox fans feel Lester was the one that got away when he decided to sign with the Cubbies in the off season.

After a roughs start in the National League, Lester has settled in and has been very good. While the record is only 8-9, his ERA is 3.44 with 159 strikeouts and 40 walks. Tonight's start will be his 26th of the season.

He is coming off an 8.2 inning/one run performance on Monday against Cleveland. Check out Lester the Cubbie here...
