Ted Lilly/Ryan Theriot update

Dodgers fans are no doubt happy about the team's deadline trade with the Cubs, at least for now. Overall, the Dodgers are just 4-4 since they acquired Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot--certainly they'll have to do much better if they hope to catch the Giants or Padres--but the two former Cubs have performed well.

Theriot went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his Dodgers debut, but is a respectable 8-for-27 (.296) in seven games since. He typically bats second in the lineup behind newly acquired Scott Podsednik.

Lilly has been even more impressive. In fact, he has nearly as many wins--two--with the Dodgers as he did with the Cubs--three. He went seven innings and allowed one run in a must-win game against the Padres, then pitched six innings and allowed three earned runs against the Nationals. He has yet to allow a walk and has struck out 11. Both of his starts have taken place at Dodger Stadium.

And just for the heck of it, Blake DeWitt's stats since joining the Cubs: 9-for-27 (.333), HR, 5 RBI, 4 runs, 2 BB
