yeah, this trade is all over espn radio in chicago. looks like sox are getting better baserunning, that's about all out of this deal. keep in mind they really need the help in that area.
look for kenny williams to make some more deals, i don't think he's done. they may be freeing up room for starting pitcher and/or thirdbaseman, both would be great.

I would imagine that Rowand/Pods/Everett makes up the CWS Outfield now, right? What am I missing?

I guess they need a leadoff guy, but I don't think Podsednik is the answer. He struck out an awful lot for a leadoff man last year.

Rowand's numbers looked very good last year, so he shouldn't be the guy who losses out if the Sox have any brains.

So now they have Dye, Everett, Podsednik and Rowand in the OF? The first three are disgusting. Good job by the Brewers though.

Gotcha...forgot about Dye.

I would take this deal to assume that Konerko will be traded leaving 1B to Frank, and as fantasy czar said, Everett to DH

I dont understand why the Chi Sox would do it. They just got screwed. Lee is worth more than that.

Anyways, as for his Fantasy Value, just took a major :-t

Just curious as to why Lee's value takes a big drop in some of your opinions. Mil is a good hitters park isn't it? Granted there is no F. Thomas or Kornerko in the Brews lineup, but Jenkins is decent and if some of the other guys get on...

It's a good hitters park but it's nowhere near the HR haven Cellular is.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

US cellular is a great Hitters park. one of the top ones. Balls fly out of the park. Also Chicago has a much better lineup which means that he will have less protection and less RBIs do to less baserunners baserunners.
