3/30 Lilly pitches & pledges

Ted Lilly threw 45 pitches over three scoreless innings in a Minor League game on Tuesday, his second start this spring. Next step will be a 60-pitch outing. The lefty is coming back from arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder and if there are no setbacks, should be ready to join the rotation by the third week in April.

Lilly also is pitching in to help Ryan Dempster raise money for his foundation. Lilly is donating $10 for every strikeout and $1,000 for every win this season to the Ryan and Jenny Dempster Family Foundation. The organization was created in help battle DiGeorge syndrome, which the Dempster’s daughter, Riley, has. Riley will celebrate her first birthday on Thursday.

OK, it is almost April, and we still do not know who the Cubs team blogger is. Is anyone on the team talented enough ? Reed Johnson started his blog during Spring training. We are way behind.

Least of our concerns, edelweiss.
