79. The Shift on R2C2 | Jon Lester
R2C2 is UNINTERRUPTED as Ryan Ruocco and CC Sabathia join the MLB Players Association (MLBPA) for another episode of The Shift on R2C2. On this episode, Ryan Ruocco and CC Sabathia are joined by Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester. Jon’s MLB story has had many chapters, from his battle with cancer, to his rivalry with the Yankees in the AL East, to bringing the Cubs their first World Series in over a century. He sits down with Ryan and C to talk about being the oldest player on the Cubs (3:22), why it’s hard for pitchers to also be managers (4:33), transitioning pitching styles (13:06), 2016 World Series memories (19:39), how beating cancer changed his life (29:51), and stories from his days with Manny Ramirez (44:10). All this and more on The Shift on R2C2!
