After an early-spring prank war that involved Tommy La Stella parking in the front office’s spaces, Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer taking La Stella’s uniform and replacing it with khakis and a polo, and La Stella putting a giant bounce house in their parking spots, the front office struck back today at the game at Sloan Park.
Wow, the Cubs with Rizzo just did a whole thing on La Stella on the video board, basically Rizzo asking the crowd to find him a "life partner". It was pretty classic. Theo and Jed got revenge. Last line was "good luck in Iowa". Ha

Great payback by Theo, Jed & Co. on Tommy La Stella and his “need” for a life partner: pic.twitter.com/rA9pfOqpwz

Ice cold. And hilarious.
Hopefully we can get a little video of this soon. I am enjoying the idea of seeing La Stella’s reaction.
