Lukewarm Stove: Mets May Want Lilly, but Can’t Add Payroll

Chicago Cubs Rumors

While the New York Mets remain a possible destination for Chicago Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly, they might not be able to take on much, if any, of his remaining $5 million owed this year, according to Buster Olney.


That means that, in order to trade Lilly to the Mets, the Cubs would have to eat the vast majority of that $5 million. On the upside, that means the return from the Mets would be more attractive.
