I thought Vizcaino was going to be the closer next year? I guess they don't have much need for RP's since they'll only be in the game every five days when Sheets takes the hill.

I am a big fan of Lee but his value just dropped.

I would think this is more their thinking if this is for real. It would free up some $ and really give the sox a chance at someone big

but then again you never really know do you.

I was really looking for a good '05 out of him, but now I don't know. :-/

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Brewers have acquired Carlos Lee from the White Sox for Scott Podsednik, Luis Vizcaino and a player to be named.

This could be good trade for the White Sox if the money saved is used on a quality starter or Placido Polanco. We're not at all confident Podsednik will go back to being a quality regular, but he is very cheap and Vizcaino is a fine No. 2 man in the pen. It's too bad the Dustin Hermanson acquisition can't be undone now, but the addition of Vizcaino could get Hermanson put into the rotation. Dec. 13 - 5:16 pm et - Rotoworld


Um, I tend to agree that this is kind of stupid on the White Sox part. Does this mean they aren't going to play Rowand? If so that is ridiculous since he is already a better player than Podsednik.

What do you guys think this does to Lee's value. (I have him as a possible keeper). I'm thinking he probably puts up about the same numbers as last year.
Let's go Mets!

I hadn't even thought of the Rowand angle. :-? Surely they don't plan on putting Pods' .250 AVG and barely .300 OBP in place of Rowand everyday. :-o
