Ryan Dempster Talks Ted Lilly

Ryan Dempster offered high praise for former teammate Ted Lilly following Wednesday’s 15-3 win against Milwaukee.

Mark it down as the Cubs’ first official sales pitch to re-sign Teddy this offseason!

“With Teddy, I always appreciated him every day for what a teammate he was, and what a competitor he was…probably more than anything.”

“I always thought I was the most competitive person out there; I never thought I would find someone more competitive than me. We pushed each other as individuals to do the best we can to help our team.”

“The 3 1/2 years I played with him were as good a time as I’ve had playing baseball. I learned as much from him as I am sure he learned from me. I probably learned more from him. It was truly an honor, not just as a baseball player, but as a human being to be around him every day. I know (the Dodgers) got someone pretty special over there,” said Dempster.
