It was cool that he tipped his hat to the fans too. Nice gesture.

Alright, he's not even halfway to DiMaggio yet :smile: What an amazing streak that was.

What happened to those that wanted to trade Carlos for the last two years? Speak up, it is time to admit you were wrong.

I've been among those folks who thinks that Lee's salary might be better spent on pitching. However, Carlos is clicking right now (as is my other favorite whipping boy, Paul Konerko). The whole offense is coming together right now.

It seems that this is the way it is for the Sox offense. When a few hitters start producing like this, the other hitters relax, stop pressing (trying to hit five-run homers :redneck ) and because they are relxed, they too produce. Its a virtuous cycle. Unfortunately the opposite happens, especially when the pressure is on (like when the revolving door fifth starter pitches). Consequently, I'd still like to see more left-handed pop in the lineup, even at the expense of some of the right-handed power.

In any case, congrats to Carlos. :gulp: I'd rather be proven wrong and have the Sox produce and win than have my concerns proven right. :smile:

Uh, DiMaggio's streak was 56. 27+4=31. I don't think he's only four away.

Yeah, I always think of Dom when anyone mentions Dimaggio's hit streak, just like most people I bet.

I'm new here, but I will acknowledge that I'm someone who was and is in favor of trading Carlos Lee. Not because he's a poor player. Not at all. There is a lot to like about Lee's game. I wish he were more patient at the plate. I wish he used his head more in the field and on the bases. But he's obviously a very fine hitter, has good speed and has turned himself into at least an average left fielder. I just think he's more valuable as trade bait to fill another hole, either a top of the rotation starting pitcher or a slugging lefty center fielder (I'm thinking of Steve Finley).

My desire to trade Lee is more about how a team should allocate its payroll. I see Magglio Ordonez as the exception to the rule that you don't pay huge bucks for a corner outfielder. Lee is good, and the White Sox will be fine if they keep him. I just think they have the chance to be even better if they move him.

All that said, I have to tell one great story about Lee. I was at the Cubs-Sox game at Wrigley last season when the Sox put that 8-spot on the board in the first inning. In the fifth, a Cub hit a ball toward the left field line. Lee raced over for it, but he missed the cut-off man, not only allowing the runner to score, but also allowing the batter to make second base. Even though that made the game 10-1, several Sox fans and I gave Lee a hard time for not making the right play. The next batter hits the ball in almost the exact same spot. This time, Lee hits the cut-off man; the run scores, but the batter remains at first base. We gave Lee an ovation, and he looked in our direction and smiled as he jogged back to his position.
