    Re: Cubs close to trading Lee to Braves

    His rejecting that Angels trade doesn't seem like such a bad move now....

    Edit: I should say, not a bad move for Derrick. It would appear that the Cubs might have got a prospect from the Angels, and won't from the Braves- although likely not much

    No doubt. The Angels were 7 games out of first place when that trade was going to happen. There wasn't any point for him to go there.

    That would be awesome! Just wonder who the Braves will give up.

    They shouldn't have to give up much more than a warm body if they end up assuming most if not all of Lee's contract.

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I always liked Lee. He went anout his business and didn't say much about. And his glove was a big plus to have.

    Poor D Lee. Always was one of my favorite Cubbies. It was time though, we need to start rebuilding.

    Re: Cubs close to trading Lee to Braves

    So what happened to him rejecting any trade? Wasn't that what he said when they tried to ship him out to Anaheim?

    I don't think may Cub fans have anything but respect for Lee.

    But he wasn't going to be back next year - and it's nice to see him go to a contender and have a shot instead of languishing the last 40 games in Chicago.

    Never heard that. He just has the right to reject any trade... don't recall that he said he would.

    That's pretty much what he said.

    Re: Cubs close to trading Lee to Braves

    We are finally getting some word now that he's been dealing with back pain, I'm guessing for most of the season. It makes sense given the cliff he fell off this year in terms of production. Best of luck D-Lee, you are a class act.

    We can start the countdown to the Adam Dunn sweepstakes. Get excited North Siders!
