Travis Lee to Retire?

Postby sox 06 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 1:30 pm

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- First baseman Travis Lee asked for and was granted his unconditional release by the Washington Nationals, who made three other roster moves before Sunday's exhibition game against the Atlanta Braves.

Lee told general manager Jim Bowden he doesn't want to play anymore, the Nationals said. Lee had been competing with Dmitri Young for the starting job at first base while Nick Johnson recovers from a broken leg.

Lee has a .997 career fielding percentage at first base, never making more than six errors in a season.

He was hitting .267 this spring.

In other moves, right-hander Tim Redding was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus and can decide whether to accept that assignment or become a free agent. Right-hander Joel Hanrahan was optioned to Columbus, and infielder Joe Thurston was reassigned to minor league camp.

if i were him i would be mad at the game.
the man was such a good fielder but never recieved a gold glove.
just because of his teams and such.
thats why baseball sucks because the big market teams get all the attention.

I sure hope this doesn't come as a major blow to anybody's fantasy team. ;-)

Lol, my thoughts exactly. The guy was a good fielder though.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
