1 source said it’s “very likely” Lee ends up with Bucs, tho Pitts will look at medicals closely. O’s likely to pay money and get A ball plyr
Unless the Class A player is someone decent, which I frankly doubt, I guess I can’t have much of a problem with this – Lee is a clear upgrade on Lyle Overbay, as just about anyone would be. But of all the names you see on this storystream – Jason Kubel, Casey Kotchman, Ryan Ludwick, Carlos Pena and so on – I like Derrek Lee the least. He’s 35 and doesn’t hit terribly well anymore. There’s certainly the possibility that he’ll catch fire down the stretch, since he’s only two years removed from a 35-homer season with the Cubs in 2009, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Until we find out what the Orioles would get, there’s little else to say about this.
