If at first you don't succeed, try, try and try yet again. That's the motto of former Chicago Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly who has been trying to sell his Wrigleyville home for the last four years. Lilly started with the Cubs in 2007 and purchased his home the same year for $2.15 million. After spending three years with the North Side squad, Lilly was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers and listed his six bedroom, six bathroom 5,400 square foot home off of the Southport Corridor in 2010 for $2.4 million. However, during the following 12 months, the home took a few price cuts and dropped down to $1.85 million, and eventually was taken off the market in July 2011. The home returned to the market last week with a $2.1 million ask, roughly the same pre-recession price Lilly paid for it seven years ago.
