Cubs 2011 Rotation Looks Like a Big Question Mark

Coming into the 2010 season, the Cubs knew they had one of the stronger starting rotations in the National League.

Mets, Phillies Won’t Trade For Lilly

Go ahead and take two teams off the list of possible Ted Lilly destinations. With the Phillies about to trade for Roy Oswalt (pending his approval) they are off the board. Ted had them on his no-trade list anyway, so it would have been hard to get him there. The Mets were an ideal landing spot, but the New York Post says they won't be trading for Ted. Given the Mets free fall in the standings this week that ...
