Ted Lilly and the Dodgers to talk extension

Sep 1, 2010, 3:02 PM EDT

With the waiver trade deadline coming and going with no deal, Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers and Ted Lilly are interested in talking about a contract extension.

Makes sense for Lilly who, Rosenthal says, really wanted to be in Los Angeles a few years ago.  Makes sense for the Dodgers too, who probably don’t want to enter another season with rotation consisting of Clayton Kershaw and the hopes for four days of rain.

I mean, maybe if it was the Marlins sure, it could be workable, but it never rains in southern California.

    Kershaw, Bilingsley & Lilly would be a good threesome to build around assuming they can get Lilly for 3 years or less. I can see the Dodgers bringing back Padilla as the fourth starter and then giving a look to Ely, Monasterios or some reclamation project (non Ortiz variety please) to round things out. If Kuroda is willing to take a 1 year deal, it is possible he could be back but having both he and Padilla in the rotation when neither is likley to be healthy enough to make 30 starts would not be wise unless they both come cheap (the new Dodger way).
