David Ortiz trolls Jon Lester on Twitter for new jersey number

  • David Whitlock

Maybe we found out the real reason that Jon Lester didn’t resign with the Boston Red Sox.  It wasn’t money or years on contract.  It was because Lester couldn’t get his preferred number of #34.  If only David Ortiz (#34 for the Sox) knew maybe his former teammate would have rejoined the team.  Check out David Ortiz funny tweet congratulating his buddy (and ribbing him about his new number) via @davidortiz

But alas, Lester has moved on (with his current twitter handle of @jlester31 having a new cover photos).  Look soon for Lester to change his twitter handle to @jlester34.  Oh wait, someone has thought of that and is willing to relinquish.

Think he’s angling for an autographed ball?  Hero or goat (get it, goat), well played, random guy who is cyber-squatting @jlester34 as of six hours ago.  Well played.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
