 Ah, the dreaded, Do-It-Youself Headlines.

Sorry to spring it on you, kids, but I'm headed downtown to do Chicago Now Radio this morning (9:30 am CT--WGN).

I'll give you one headline, and then you guys pick it up from there, okay?

It seems like good news on Ted Lilly, eh Bruce Miles?:

Ted Lilly pitched from flat ground a few minutes ago. He said it was fine. Assistant GM Randy Bush said of the MRI: "It was good news. It's normal wear and tear. Nothing to worry about." GM Jim Hendry is in Florida, where he and shortstop Ryan Theriot indeed went to arbitration this morning. We should have results tomorrow. 

(claps hands in glee) I can't WAIT to find out who wins the Theriot hearing! All hail TOOTBLANS (Thrown Out On The Basepaths Like a Nincompoop--a stat developed by wrigleyville over at his blog Wrigleyville23)!

Cubs won their arb hearing with Theriot according to MLBTR according to Sullivan. He will make 2.6 this year.

It's so good to hear (or read) the words, no matter how contrived the resulting excitement may be.

That's an important decision, because it could mean the Cubs sign Chan Ho Park, who, although terminally ineffective as a starter, could be a great addition to the bullpen AND the flying scissor kick department.

That could be very useful -- Android needs to pick that up as an app. Now if they could only do a comparative analysis between the prices I paid for Cubs tickets and how much they are actually worth...

There are some things you're probably just better off not knowing.
