Looks like Derrek Lee to the Pirates is “getting very close” according to a source. Could very well happen tonight.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

As much as I think that Derrek Lee isn’t an upgrade over someone like Jones and putting Bowker in RF, his .248/.306/.409 slash line and 0.3 WAR are better than the .228/.301/.343 slash and -0.8 WAR owned by “$5.0MM” Lyle Overhaul. Lee’s OPS+ is 97. OPS+ is a park-adjusted OPS, with 100 being average. 99 or below is below average and 101+ is above average. This is considerably better than Overbay’s OPS+ of 81.

UPDATE: 11 pm

The player in the Lee deal is a A-level hitter. But Is need to be dotted. Ts crossed. May not be announced until tomoroless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply



As long as the hitter isn’t Robbie Grossman, I’m fine. Nobody else in A-ball is a a decent prospect.
