You needed more today, didn’t you? Masochist. The final baseball to the groin, in the form of now having to see Jon Lester – JON LESTER – pitching in a damn St. Louis Cardinals uniform.
Damn you, Nationals:

The Cubs don’t play the Cardinals again until late September, but then they play them a LOT in late September. So if Lester is healthy, well, we’re gonna see him as a Cardinal facing the Cubs. Gross. This whole deadline has me feeling like I need to take a shower – even more than when I was wearing the nacho helmet.
