Default Sox avoid arbitration

Sox sign Lee, Singleton to new deals
Carlos Lee has averaged 24 home runs and 88 RBIs the past two seasons. The White Sox avoided arbitration with Carlos Lee and Chris Singleton, signing the outfielders to new contracts Thursday. The 25-year-old Lee, who batted .269 with 24 home runs, 84 RBIs and 17 stolen bases in 2001, signed a two-year contract. Singleton, 29, who hit .298 with seven home runs, 45 RBIs and 12 steals, signed a one-year deal. A full story is coming

I guess we'll never find out what an arbitrator thinks Chris Singleton is worth in dollars. I was interested in finding out what a sub .250 lifetime, under-achieving centerfielder was worth in 2002.

BTW, did he really steal 12 bases? I don't remember a single one.

Something tells me that CLR has poisoned your brain with his teachings.

Maybe Singleton. Not Lee.

Move both of them as far as I'm concerned.

Singleton is definately looking like the oddman out....but moving Lee now is folly unless someone out there highly overvalues him...he is near the low end of his potential value and is generally a good half player, so if you are going to move him and the odds of him having a good first half are decent..let him put up some numbers and the player you can get for him morphs from a 3-4 starter to a legitimate threat to be a number 2 starter, plus with Lee still here you don't have to rely on both Rowand and Borchard being ready to go, so you don't have to rush guys or play a guy who shouldn't be playing

I thought you would have realized that Carlos Lee is not the reason why the Sox aren't winning the series anytime soon.

I realize that Carlos is a DH running around in LF.
I think Senor Sock said it best when he wished for a glove big enough to cover all of left feild for Carlos.
I also realize that Carlos may be better suited wearing the glove he has now on his head.

Daver granted Carlos isnt the best LF ....but how many games do you think is the difference between the best defensive LF and Carlos? Now if Carlos doesn't turn his hitting around from what he did in the 2nd half this question is academic, but when Carlos hits like he can, doesn't that more than offset his defensive shortcomings and make him a plus player overall?

You want him gone because of his defense. My point is that it doesn't matter. If the Sox were on the verge of winning the Series and Carlos was costing the team games, then fine move him. Since there not, he's not "hurting" the team.

That's just my view of the situation, I know you disagree.
