The Orioles sent Derrek Lee to the Pirates for minor leaguer Aaron Baker. Lee has 12 HRs which would make him second on the team for home runs. He may not have much left but he certainly appears to be an improvement over Lyle Overbay.

Interesting.

Hope to see him terrorize Cubbie pitching, for old time's sake.

Nice deal. Lee is a good 2nd half hitter, and prior to Saturday's game, was 8 for his last 17 and 15 for his last 41. Baker isn't even considered one of the top 30 Pirates prospects. I think the Pirates could still use upgrades at 3B, RF, and possibly another SP.
