Carlos Lee Rejects 4 Year/$48 Million Extension

Brewers wishlist:

Catcher
Middle Relief
Pitching in general

Dunno what we'll get though. No matter what happens the fans aren't going to like it. But with Hardy out for the season, Sheets and Ohka being hurt for a good chunk of the season... it was just kind of a dud. If everything had gone as planned expect the Brewers to be up a few games and be buyers instead of sellers.

Oh well... theres always next year, right? :-o

He has done his 7 years under the current system, including taking pennies on the dollar from Chicago, and now finished his arbitration. He has earned his right to go out into the free agent market to see what he can get.


While this is true, free agency sucks. Just like Beltran in KC. Small teams can never keep their studs. That's alot to say no too. There was this 2b, i forget his name. He turned down like 5 mil, and ended up signing for around $500,000. Sometimes it can kill you. Say Lee blows out something, and becomes a injury prone player? He may never see 48 mil.

I believe the guy you're thinking of is Jody Reed, circa 1993.
