Dodgers trade for Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot

The Dodgers have acquired Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot via trade from the Cubs. Yeah, we have a another solid starting pitcher. Of course, we're far enough behind that it might be too late, and naturally it remains to be seen how high the prospect cost is. I am not immediately saddened by anybody who we gave up, so we'll see how things go.

In a separate deal, we made a trade with the Pirates for reliever Octavio Dotel. We gave up pitching prospect James McDonald to get Dotel.

Update: I am watching the Dodgers game, and the announcers just mentioned that today is 12 years to the day that the Dodgers traded (then minor leaguer) Ted Lilly away in a deal with the Montreal Expose to get Carlos Perez and Mark Grudzielanek. I knew we had traded Lilly away back in the day, but I didn't know that it occurred on July 31st. It's the circle of life...
