Filed under: Cardinals, Cubs, NL CentralIn 2007, Ted Lilly was surprisingly effective. In 2008, Lilly is a bit more what the Cubs expected when they signed him -- a pretty mediocre third-wheel lefty that can eat innings and occasionally throw a lights-out effort. The unexpected part happened last night, as you'll see below:
Yes, that was Ted Lilly. Yes, that was Yadier Molina. Yes, that was Ted Lilly sending Yadier Molina to la-la-land with the mere shrug of one much-stronger-than-it-looks left shoulder. Where has Lilly been hiding this athleticism? Or are we to assume that Yadier Molina is actually that weak?
The mind boggles.
