According to a report from Bruce Levine, the Twins “have been the most aggressive team in their pursuit of Ted Lilly.” But the Dodgers may have found a way to squeeze in the $5.5 million left on Lilly’s contract.
According to Levine, “look for Minnesota and the Dodgers to be front-runners for Ted Lilly as teams make their final pitch to make a deal with the Cubs in the next 72 hours.” Eight scouts were on hand to watch Ted Lilly and Brett Myers on Tuesday night. The Dodgers, Mets, Twins and Tigers remain interested in acquiring Lilly before the deadline Saturday … the Yankees are also rumored to be interested.
Ted Lilly does not want to be traded, he has said as much over and over again in recent weeks. ‘The Bulldog‘ is penciled in to start Monday night in the series opener against the Brewers at Wrigley.
