The Los Angeles Dodgers, hoping to somehow come back next season with a decent team, will try to re-sign left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly this winter. Lilly was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in a trade deadline deal that also moved Ryan Theriot to L.A. as well.

With the Dodgers, Lilly has posted a 5-3 record and a less than stellar 4.12 ERA. During the waiver period, it was also noted the New York Yankees were also trying to re-acquire the 34 year old. If Lilly were to test free agent waters, the Yankees may want to go after him too in case Andy Pettitte retires after this season.

Do not expect the Dodgers to go all out in a bidding war, since money is tight right now in within the organization due to the McCourt family divorce.
