I’ve said numerous times Ted Lilly is the true ace of the Cubs’ rotation.
Of course, I’m always repeating myself because Cubs fans and the media barely recognize Lilly as an ace.
Don’t ask me why, either? I think the whole conversation is plain as day.
Break it down how you like, but there’s not an equal on this staff to Lilly. His overall numbers, wins and big-game production since signing with the Cubs three years ago is unmatched.
Lilly is the ace, even if by the slightest of margins. Better than Zambrano, better than Dempster, better than whomever.
