07:09 AM ET 07.29 | Though he might be moved in time to make his next start for a new team, there is the question of whether Ted Lilly might re-sign with the Cubbies in 2011. The Cubs say they won't make that kind of decision until after the season. And several factors might come into play, not the least of which is how quickly and efficiently they can unload right-hander Carlos Zambrano. ... "We'll see," Lilly said. "We're getting toward the end of July, and those kinds of things are a ways away. So many things between now and then can happen. I think it's evident I would prefer to stay here for the future. But you get to that point where you get the opportunity to become a free agent, those don't come around too often."

My initial thought was the Yankees but then I rememberd that Cliff Lee is a free agent so that takes Lilly out of the equation

Not necessarily....I look for the Yanks to dump AJ Burnett

I don't think they'll dump Burnett - did you see what he did to the prolific Indians offense last night? Bahahaha

I seriously doubt the Yankees or any AL East team would pursue Lilly. He was an average pitcher during his younger years in the AL, era+ 101, it won't improve at age 35.

He usually pitches well against the Indians dating back to Toronto. But can you really say he has worked out?

His AL pitching numbers are the mirror image of Josh Beckett's, in fact he has a better era. Has Beckett workd out?

Indians traded Peralta to the Tigers.

Some guys don't care if they ever earn a Championship ring. I guess Lilly is one of them.
