Lilly Has Surgery, Presumably Operates On Self

Cubs Pitcher Lilly Throws Against the New York Mets

 

Today the Cubs stated that perennial bad-ass Ted Lilly underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The Cubs did not realease any information as to whether Ted had surgery at the behest of the CIA or Barack Obama as part a Middle East peace plan or to solve global warming once and for all.

Ted expects to be ready by April.

Uh--don't pitchers and catchers report in February? Don't we need him ready by then?

Game 6 tonight. Pedro v. Pettite.

Bruce Miles has more on Lilly:

"The Cubs say Ted will begin a rehab program and will be evaluated after Jan. 1 to see when he can begin a throwing program. They say they're hopeful he can be in the rotation within the month of April.

We’re scheduled to talk with Ted and with Jim Hendry this afternoon. If you remember, Ted had some shoulder issues this year, along with knee surgery.

UPDATE: Ted said he hoped to begin throwing again in four months, which would mean the first part of March, just when Cactus League games are under way.

"The idea is maybe to start throwing in four months or so," he said. "A lot of that is going to be dictated on just how the rehab goes. That can change one way or another. My intention is to get back as soon as I can without setting myself back."

Ok...why didn't this happen a month ago?

JulieDiCaro said:

Because that would have. . . It would have meant. . . Maybe it was because. . . .

aaaah, I got nothing.

I have so much work to do, and I'm soooo tired.

Do I stay here and fall asleep doing work on my bed? Or fall asleep out at the coffeeshop and risk being molested by a stranger?

Doc said:

that all depends on how you feel about molestation.

I wouldn't worry too much about Lilly. He's got 5-6 months to get it right, and I'm sure with Larry Rothschild and his towel drills....all will be fine in Cub Land.

It only makes sense...

Lilly was our best pitcher this year...he has to have his career ruined now...right? That's that way it works.

JulieDiCaro said:

Hmmm.

Pedro really kind of fell apart there. :(

JulieDiCaro said:

I swear Pettite holds his glove up like that every pitch so he can spit on the ball.

AndCounting said:

I agree with that so much I'm crying.

Andy Pettite's allowed to marry dudes in Maine.

Ed Nickow said:

He doesn't need to hold up his glove, Julie. He puts his pitching hand up to his mouth and spits right in it. Almost every pitch.

AndCounting said:

You are quite right, Ed. / There's a Pettite can cheat clause / in the CBA.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Also a clause saying he's allowed to spoon with Roger Clemens whenever possible.

AndCounting said:

Preferably at Canseco's house.

Doc said:

user-pic

Was it just me, or did pedro look sicker tonight than he did last thursday when he started?

Doc said:

user-pic

And I'm sure glad the Cubs didn't sign Pedro this year...because he would have blown it for us in the World Series.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

I was thinking the same thing. And that he kind of looks like Cree Summer.

Doc said:

I'm fairly sure Mariano Rivera is slowly turning into Morgan Freeman.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

If only the Cubs had hired Girardi instead of Piniella, we would be winning the World Series!

Doc said:

user-pic

And our failure is complete.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

And held on to Jerry Hairston Jr. Hendry is an idiot!

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

user-pic

He could've been our starting left fielder.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

At various points in the season at least, he could have been our starting center fielder, right fielder, third baseman, shortstop, or second baseman, too. Icky poo.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

user-pic

And maybe he could've spelled Koyie at catcher when Soto was on the DL.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

True, which for some reason reminds me that if we had Hairston, it would have been one more reason not to play Jake Fox, which would have sucked.

And he could have gotten Chicago the Olympics.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

No, he did not operate on himself.

I love Ted Lilly, but I can't even begin to explain how tired I am of this Ted Lilly as Chuck Norris meme.

millertime said:

user-pic

Ha. Chuck Norris wishes he was Ted Lilly.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

It's not any sillier than the actual Chuck Norris meme. Nobody really even likes/is impressed by/is remotely scared of Chuck Norris. He looks like the love child of Vincent Van Gogh and Elmo.

millertime said:

user-pic

Plus his movies are shit. So was Walker Texas Ranger.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

That's a different subject entirely, though I do agree. I just... words cannot emphasize enough how tired I am of this.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

While we're on the subject, I really don't like the word meme. It gives me the heebie jeebies.

flyball said:

user-pic

agreed, its like a non-word mumble

millertime said:

Hooray! The WS is over! We can start planning for the Cubs World Series 2010!

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by these sons of New York;
And all the clouds that low'r'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

AndCounting said:

Have they made this into a Levi's commercial yet?

millertime said:

user-pic

Shit, thats right. I better copyright this or something, those idiot yuppies buy anything if you just show pictures of the product and quote a random writer they have no idea about.
