When the Cubs traded Ted Lilly to the Dodgers two months ago there was some speculation that he could return to Chicago by re-signing as a free agent this offseason, but that seems pretty unlikely now that Bob Goldsborough of the Chicago Tribune reports that Lilly has his “Wrigleyville mansion” on the market.
Lilly has “listed his six-bedroom, nearly 5,500-square-foot mansion just west of Wrigley Field for $2.4 million.” He reportedly paid $2.15 million for the place in early 2007, after he signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Cubs.
My favorite part of the Chicago Tribune article was this paragraph:
In a brief interview, Ryan D’Aprile of d’aprile realty confirmed that Lilly’s house is for sale, but declined to comment on it, saying that the pitcher is trying to keep the listing confidential.
Yeah, good luck with that.
If he tells everyone Derek Jeter owned the place, Lilly may or may not be able to get even more than $2.4 million.
