...Jeff Leifer. He is absolutely worthless. All this about how we need to get him more time to get his swing going is BS. Hey Jeff aren't you taking batting practice on the days you dont play? How long does he need to get his swing in gear? Maybe by September? Send his ass to Charlotte.

Didn;t Sweet Leaf used to provide great lefty power off the bench? What happened?

He's out of options and would have to clear waivers.

We should have thrown him in a deal at the break, granted this is KW so of course that didn't happen. Either deal him over the winter or take your chances at him clearing and cut your losses if he doesn't.

I don't know how many people still back this idea, but I have been saying for a while now to trade Caballo.

Given that they are equally useless in the outfield, that leaves their hitting and baserunning to consider. How does Leifer have the edge over Lee? Lee's a terrible baserunner, but Leifer doesn't get on base.

I grant you, Lee would bring a better quality player in return, at least if we had a GM who knew what he was doing.

Oh, what the hell, as Leo Durocher used to say; "back up the truck".

Dont worry, given that he is the sox new player rep, he is as good as gone by opening day next year.

I don't understand why people want to get rid of Lee. I see him developing into a great ballplayer.

People think he'll bring a back a quality starter. He'll bring back Todd Ritchie II.

Carlos had a lot of hype around him. The comparison I heard the most was that he was a young Manny Ramirez. He hasn't panned out yet, only time will tell I guess.
