As special assistant to president/general manager.
Lilly will spend time with the club during spring training, visit the minor league affiliates during the season, evaluate amateur players leading up to the draft and perform professional scouting assignments.

He will also be teaching young pitchers the art of spiking the glove after giving up a long one.

This cannot be true, I have been assured on this board that only the Sox gave token front office jobs to popular former players.

Was Ted Lilly popular? I always thought he was waaaay behind guys like Zambrano, Soriano, Ramirez, Lee, Wood, even Marmol.

I wouldn't exactly look to the Cubs as a good example of how to do things.
