Also, the Mets have been pursuing KRod.

A .747 OPS isn't what you're looking for out of your first baseman, but he's a career .286 hitter, so the phrasing does seem bizarre.

Buster Olney. Lee is still ok, but most of his hits are singles these days. Better than Gaby Sanchez though.

Carlos Lee has suddenly become Magglio Ordonez, but right now anything is better than Gaby.

I also have a hunch that the Blue Jays are trying to dangle Adam Lind for some SP help.

Nothing confirmed, but just a hunch I have.

Whatever you get for Lind won't be considered help...

Lind cleared waivers not so long ago; I really doubt they'll get anything other than a terrible contract like Mark Teahen in return.

Lee has been traded to the Marlins for Matt Dominguez and Rob Rasmussen, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

Spin: Following Wednesday's game, Lee's locker was already empty, so it's expected that he'll be joining the Marlins in Milwaukee for their series finale with the Brewers on Thursday afternoon.

Lee moving to Florida is a no-impact fantasy move, right (except maybe in super deep NL-Onlies its a bit painful; Lee doesn't gain any value from the move though does he?)?

Second, Dominguez and Rasmussen (really just Dominguez) seems to be a pretty good haul for the Astros...

I'm not convinced Dominguez will ever hit enough to be a fantasy-relevant 3B, but with his defense he could hold down a job for a long time. I'd be fine with that deal as an Astros fan.

Talk is that AA is pursuing either Greinke or Cole Hamels. D'Arnaud's injury put a damper on the talks but they still have good outfield depth with Gose and others and many young arms. If the Jays go on a winning streak the odds are good that something get done but it's just as possible that they fall out of the wc race.
