2008 Community Projections: Ted Lilly

Last year, a lot of people made comparisons between Ted Lilly and Bronson Arroyo -- a lefthander who had had middling success in the NL East, and guessed that Lilly, as did Arroyo in 2006, would do better coming over to the "easier" NL Central.

That's exactly what happened -- Lilly became one of the top lefties in the NL. Now, we are hoping that he doesn't regress in 2008, as Arroyo did in 2007 for the Reds.

One of the key things for Lilly is to keep his walk count down, as he did last year. Ted set career bests in innings, strikeouts, WHIP, and ERA. His 55 walks ranked sixth among all qualified (162+ innings) pitchers in the NL.
