D. Lee traded?

Postby cookman » Wed Oct 22, 2008 6:14 pm

Just heard on The Score (am sports radio) that D. Lee was traded tentatively pending his waiving his no trade clause. Didn't hear to who or who they got, though. Cant find this on any major news sites. Does anyone have any more info?

That makes zero sense unless the Cubs suddenly become the absolute frontrunners in the Teixeira sweepstakes.

Yeah, that's what I thought. They made it sound like this was done. I don't think this would be terrible at all for the Cubs, although it really depends on what they get back. D. Lee has been pretty average offensively. Obviously Hoffpauir is a downgrade defensively, but he is younger, cheaper, has looked good in limited time so far, has a lot more power (25 HRs in 71 minor league games), and, probably most importantly, is a lefty bat which the Cubs are DYING for. I wouldn't mind seeing them get a couple of decent prospects and maybe make a run at Peavy.

I'm sorry, but the Lee to Hoffpauir downgrade is MASSIVE.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/h/hoffpmi01.shtml

28 years old before playing a game in the majors
MiLB career: 96 HR in 675 games (about 23/162), .290 AVG, .832 OPS, 425/211 K/BB ratio
Majors: (in 33 games) 2 HR in 73 AB, .342 AVG, .934 OPS, 24/6 K/BB ratio

He's like the Nick Stavinoha of the Cubs. He has one good minor league season and suddenly people are putting him in as a major league level starter. Bullwhacky. If the Cubs trade away Lee they better get solid pitching prospects and also sign Teixeira.

Also, I don't see the big need for Peavy. The Cubs went out and got another ace over the summer. Why do we need a third ace all of a sudden? Most teams would love to have a Zambrano/Harden/Dempster/Lilly/Marshall rotation. Should Dempster sign with someone else, I wouldn't mind seeing Lowe in that three-spot. Failing that,I wouldn't mind seeing Maddux or Moyer return.

I don't think it would be an entirely bad idea to move Double Play Derrick.

The Snore is always trying to break news. Odds are, they're wrong.

I caught the last episode of Chicago Tribune Live. One of the guys said the rumor that Lee is heading to San Diego (for Peavy?). It was pretty conclusive that it ain't gonna happen.

Hey cookman, which show were you listening to?
