    Dodgers get Lilly and Theriot for Dewitt.. 2 Minor leaguers

    Nice trade for the Dodgers. Dewitt is terrible.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I don't think DeWitt's terrible. He's been jerked around a lot at positions and from the majors to the minors and hasn't had a full season as a starter. He's got potential to provide solid production for little to no money.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Isn't Lilly a Class A FA at the end of the year? Seems like the two draft picks would have been a better deal for the Cubs. $5M salary dump I guess ($4M + $1M) and a few years of control for Dewitt vs. the picks.

    So NL Central has moved out Oswalt, Berkman, Ludwick and now Lilly in the last 48 hours.

    You don't offer arbitration to declining players coming off of large deals, unless you want to get stuck with a huge salary.

    Of course not, but Lilly has been solid and since the beginning of 2009 he's above his career norms. <1.1 WHIP, well over a 3K/BB rate and >7K/9IP

    He's easily worth 10M in 2011. Arbitration would be a no brainer, and he'd turn it down for sure.
