What team can afford to give Lee a big contract? The Red Sox, Yankees, and Mets sure don't need him. The Angels are probably not going to part with Garrett Anderson and the Dodgers have Andre Ethier out there. The Cubs have the money, but probably won't spend it. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.

The Cubs will have a lot of money to throw away.

And then there was a scream heard from one end of Chicago to the other cut off suddenly by the sound of Hangar's head exploding...

Isn't Lee at least three years away from being a free agent, if not four?

Maybe he saw what Peralta managed to get away with and wanted something similar for himself.

Nope, this is his FA year....which is why the Brewers traded him in the first place.

I think you are referring to the Indians Pitcher. The article is about Carlos Lee, alleged left fielder, and former White Sox.

I could see him staying in Texas.

And then him being traded in two years with half his Salary being paid by the Rangers to another team for prospects... you know the drill...

Yeah, after turning down what IMHO was a reasonable offer from the Brewers, 4 yrs/$48M. I don't think he's worth Konerko money (5 yrs/$60M), due to his deficient defense, not to mention that Paulie seems to me to be a better clubhouse presence (not that I've ever been, but still...) so it will be interesting to see what he settles for as well as where he goes.

:gulp:

Edit: Had to correct PK's contract terms!

Who seriously has the money to spend anymore? Especially on OF's? This may be another case of Boras having one team bid against itself...

See deal for Ordonez, Magglio (2005) or Rodriguez, Alex or Gonzalez, Juan-Gone

CLee has apparently changed his mind about hiring Borass.
