Who said that?

I think it's from the quote.
The 36-year-old is hitting .287/.336/.411 with five home runs and 29 RBI through 66 games this season. Miami will hope for better.

but I don't think that necessarily meant the AVG. he only has 5 HR and 15 doubles on the season. last year in a full season he had 18 HR and 38 doubles.

Carlos Lee is almost producing AGon numbers and was had for half the price.

The fantasy impact of the Lee trade may be with Brett Wallace, who hit very well while Lee was on the DL, and currently sports a .873 OPS in AAA, and in 11 G posted an OPS over 1.000 with the Astros earlier this year (pay no attention to the sample size or the .500 BABIP, please). Over the final 80 Games of the season, it's possible Wallace approaches 12 HR, 40 R, 40 RBI, with a decent average.

Here's what today's FanGraphs article had to say about Wallace:

With Carlos Lee headed for the sunny beaches of Miami, the door has opened for Wallace to leave Oklahoma City and return to Houston to take over full-time duties at first base, according to Houston Chronicle. Earlier in June, Wallace made a quick cameo appearance and while 42 plate appearances is hardly enough time to make an accurate assessment, he did hit safely in eight of the 11 games in which he played and had four multi-hit games in that span. His time in the majors last season and the year before, he appeared over-matched at times but even with a 33.3% strikeout rate this year, that didn’t seem the case this time.

He’s not going to dazzle you with any kind of eye-popping numbers, but as a regular contributor with a little bit of pop in his bat, he’ll make for a decent choice at the corner infield spot in deeper leagues. His minor league totals may not perfectly translate to the majors, but so far this season in Triple-A he’s posted a slash line of .284/.346/.508 with 13 home runs and 14 doubles through 260 plate appearances and his .225 ISO gives promise for developing power on the horizon. Strikeouts? You’ll see plenty, but if he can continue to improve his plate discipline as he’s done over the last few seasons, those should slowly dwindle as well. He may not lead you to a championship all on his own, but he can definitely be a helpful cog in the machine.

teams have interest in Chase Headley.
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Dodgers, Pirates, Indians, Orioles, Diamondbacks and two unidentified teams are believed to have "some level of interest" in a trade for Chase Headley.
Headley is a popular guy, but since he's under team control through 2014, it will likely take a lot for the Padres to move him. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .271/.372/.421 with eight home runs, 42 RBI and a .794 OPS through 82 games this season and would likely blossom in a more favorable home environment. The switch-hitter owns a .666 career OPS at PETCO Park compared to an .811 career OPS on the road.


if the Padres were to move Headley, they could promote Jedd Gyorko to take over at 3B. he's come up through the minors as a 3B prospect, but as far as I know has been playing 2B this season in the minors.
he has been tearing up the minors this season..
http://www.thebaseballcube.com/players/ ... edd-Gyorko
AA- 34/130 - .262/.347/.431/.778/ 6 HR
AAA- 46/197 - .350/.399/.599/.998/ 11 HR
for what it's worth, AAA is the PCL.

Maybe he pitched like garbage so he wouldn't have to go play for either of them. :-°

The Royals are willing to trade Jonathan Broxton.

I think that's a repost from Spring Training.

I'm not sure what to make of this one..

According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, major league sources say the Diamondbacks would consider offers for Justin Upton should the club fall out of contention.
It's unlikely that the Diamondbacks fall far enough out of the race in the National League West to become outright sellers, but General Manager Kevin Towers isn't afraid to make bold moves and will entertain offers for any player on his roster. The 24-year-old budding superstar is affordable and under team control through 2015, and it would take an incredible haul to pry him away.

Not sure how I feel about that as an Upton owner in a keeper league. I'd hate to see him leave Chase Field but at the same time, I'd love to see him in a potent lineup...
