Cubs continue free spending ways & sign...
Left handed Pitcher Ted Lilly to a 4 year, $40 million deal. I don't know what has gotten into Jim Hendry this off season (and unfortunately it may have come 3 years too late), but it certainly is promising.
In fact, this pessimist may start to believe that the Cubs might just be on their way to becoming the favorites in a weak NL Central division.
Certainly, the acquisition of Crazy Lou as manager looked to portend such a spending frenzy, as we suggested on this page a month and a half ago. None of us, however, expected Jim to open the purse strings so liberally.
Oh and by the way - welcome Ryno to Peoria!
We're glad to have you!
