Lilly Logical Trade Target

Manager Joe Torre said Thursday “I think something will be done,” meaning the acquisition of pitching help before next weekend’s trade deadline.

The most logical candidate the Dodgers have been scouting is Cubs left-hander Ted Lilly, originally a Dodgers farmhand who pitched parts of three seasons for Torre with the Yankees.

The Dodgers have been linked to just about every pitcher believed on the market, from Paul Maholm to Roy Oswalt (despite the $30 million commitment that comes with him) to relievers Octavio Dotel, Jason Fraser and Scott Downs. They also want to add a reliever, what with the indefinite absence of Ronald Belisario and the season-long struggles of George Sherrill.

I hope the Dodgers are looking at something more than Lilly for help. It would be nice to see them at least make an attempt at Oswalt and get themselves a #1 starter. But I guess the best we Dodger fans can hope for is the McCourts are forced to sell the team and we get an owner like those other LA Teams have (Moreno & Buss).

I am a long time Cubs fan and I really hope they do not trade Lilly. There is next year and you still need a good starter especially from the lefth and side. Lilly fills the bill and he has been a lot better than his record shows. I believe he leads the majors in the least run support. I would like to see them agree to a three year contract with him. As to Lilly and Oswalt I am not so sure Lilly is that far off from Oswalt. Who ever gets him will get a good guy who will keep you in the game. Give him some support and he will win games for you.

the Cubs need to get rid of Lilly, Teriot , Lee ,
if they can gather enough prospects they would have a great future and a good current team

Soriano LF
Marlon Bryd CF
Aramis Ramirez 3B
Starlin Castro SS
Tlyer Colvin RF
Giovanni Soto C
develope a 1B
AND maybe sign a veteran 2b for the short term

pitching
1. Ryan Dempster
2. Carlos Silva
3. Randy Wells
4. Carlos Zambrano
5. develope a young pitcher

move Gorzelanny to the bullpen ..and get some bullpen help from those trades.. and have marmol close things out
