HOUSTON -- For Ted Lilly, the scenery has changed. The city, the uniform, the teammates, those things are all different. But the story has been basically the same, all season, whether he was pitching for the Chicago Cubs or the Los Angeles Dodgers, whether he was pitching to keep his team in the playoff hunt of merely trying to finish up strong.
Not nearly enough run support. Not nearly enough of a margin for error. And, for the most part, not nearly enough victories.
