Carlos Lee gets a new contract

Postby Madison » Fri Dec 19, 2003 11:37 pm

Carlos Lee - OF - Chicago White Sox Dec 19

White Sox agreed to terms with outfielder Carlos Lee on two one-year, $15 million contract with an option for 2006.
Lee gets $6.5 million next season and $8 million in 2005. Chicago has an $8.5 million option for 2006 with a $500,000 buyout. This looks like an awful lot of money to give to a corner outfielder with a career OPS of 814. The White Sox look at 2003 as a breakthrough season because of his 113 RBI, but it his 830 OPS says it wasn't. The White Sox are probably making a mistake by thinking that he'll hit so well with RISP again in 2004.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I believe that is good for the Sox. Lee has the potential to be a stud. I just hope the steals keep coming.

seems about right compared to the way sluggers are getting paid these days.
