  1. what a trade by the marlins, eh? yikes

  2. owlssc 3 years ago

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

  3. WrigleyTerror37 3 years ago

    Pirates Alfonso is available 😉

    woooh carlos lee

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

    • Karkat 3 years ago

      Because Marlins

    • mlbscout6 3 years ago

      Because they have no clue what they’re doing

    • johnsilver 3 years ago

      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.

      • LazerTown 3 years ago

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

    • $6592481 3 years ago

      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.

  6. Jim C 3 years ago

    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.

  7. Vail Beach 3 years ago

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

    • richardb21 3 years ago

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

    • Karkat 3 years ago

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

  8. richardb21 3 years ago

    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.

  9. Mike Adamson 3 years ago

    Who are the Pirates after?

    • 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 3 years ago

        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.

        • 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

    • Chiburgh 3 years ago

      Denard Span?

  10. coachL 3 years ago

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

    • PHILAbeatdown 3 years 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 3 years ago

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

  11. Karkat 3 years ago

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

    • Karkat 3 years 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 ago

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

        • Karkat 3 years ago

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

  12. ultimate913 3 years ago

    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 ago

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

  13. Redding 3 years ago

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

  14. TheReturnOfMrBlanks 3 years ago

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

  15. rsanchez1 3 years ago

    Why isn’t Larry Beinfest fired yet?

  16. formerdraftpick 3 years ago

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