Lee to Giants? He’d be a better fit than Morneau.

Pirates Alfonso is available 😉

We’ll take him. Throw in 95% of his salary and we will give you a middle reliever.

3 years 28 days ago

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Do. Not. Want.

Why trade for a guy and desperately want to get rid of him within a couple weeks?

Because Marlins

In other news, gravity.

Because they have no clue what they’re doing

They figured out he is a DH who sticks a glove on his hand, but -0- clue how to use it properly.

I kid you not.. David ortiz plays a better defensive 1b than Lee! At least ortiz can handle a pickoff throw from a pitcher and doesn’t get:

A) Picked off himself from the pitcher
B) Totally miss the throw, even when he is STANDING on the 1b bag.

Lee just might be the worst guy have ever see *stand* at 1b and wear a glove ever. he sure can’t be called a defensive player.

He wouldn’t be a bad dh option if his power wasn’t gone.

Maybe they felt they would be able to get a better return for him, than what they gave up? I’m kind of grasping at straws right now.

I feel so bad for the Marlins. They got half a year of a big market team and now the FO is back to their old cheap ways.

Hasn’t Carlos Lee now lost his 10 and 5 rights?

richardb21
3 years 28 days ago

Yes but he has a list of teams he can’t be traded to.

Karkat
3 years 28 days ago

He never actually had them. Bargained them for some other stuff and a hard list in his contract.

richardb21

The Marlins should have seen this coming with Lee and now they are begging to get rid of him and they aren’t even paying his contract.

Who are the Pirates after?

3 years 28 days ago

If they were smart…Cody Ross. It would take two fringe AA guys to get him and he’s owed less than 1.5 mill for the remainder of the season. Not control after this year, but def a poor man’s Pence

johnsilver

Poor man’s Pence? Other way around… Ross’s numbers are better than Pence’s and Pence has played in 30 more games…

Ross has a higher OPS, .SLG, 1 less HR.. The numbers are all skewed to Ross and he is making less than 1/2 what Pence is.

3 years 27 days ago

Who would’ve cost the Pirates more $$$ and/or prospects? Pence or Ross? Pence by far due to age and contract control. I agree that Ross is having a better season. He also happens to be in a far superior lineup and sees umpteen thousand more fastballs in the zone than Pence does. So, despite Ross having better numbers I still think that Pence is a better player for now and the future and Sabean of the Giants apparently agrees. he let Ross walk without a decent offer if he even made one at all this offseason and then went on to trade prospects to attain Pence to help the middle of the lineup which Ross wasn’t able to do consistenly

Denard Span?

Maybe the Buccos are trying to throw Travis Snider into a Pence deal.

PHILAbeatdown
3 years 28 days ago

I actually think that coyld be a good idea. I just dont see why they would giv lincoln up for snider tho cause phillies need relief and I surely believe they woule hav taken him in a pence deal also. Which maked me think again about them even wanting pence now…

WrigleyTerror37

or now they can include one or 2 of Tabatha, Marte, Alex P.

Phil Smith
3 years 28 days ago

Bingo!

Erik DC Murray
3 years 28 days ago

They aren’t trading Marte!

Karkat
3 years 28 days ago

Maybe you shouldn’t have traded FOR him in the first place, Miami!

Karkat
3 years 28 days ago

^ The last time you will see the words “first place Miami” all in a row in a baseball context for quite a while

rsanchez1
3 years 28 days ago

Well, everyone is in first place to start the season.

Karkat
3 years 28 days ago

Trust me, when you’re a Red Sox fan, everyone is in last place to start the season.

ultimate913

Just go for Lee, NYY. I mean, could it really hurt anymore with the way you’ve been losing and Teixeira having that wrist problem now?

Trout Almonte
3 years 28 days ago

They might have to pay for his medical bills once angry New Yorkers throws bottles at him for his lackluster performance.

Redding

Whoever wrote the headline is a genius putting Indians, Lee and Phillies together…

TheReturnOfMrBlanks

Dodgers should get Lee to platoon with Loney, I’m not a Lee fan but he drives in runs and loney doesn’t.

3 years 28 days ago

Why isn’t Larry Beinfest fired yet?

Taking a look at how the Dodgers and Giants stocked up, I hope that the Pirates have better luck next year.
