Carlos Lee Traded to Rangers


Recommended Posts

pretty dumb deal imo


Nix has been flat out awful even in AAA with a sexy 77/18 K/BB ratio


Mench is ok


Cordero is ok but isn't he a FA after the season?


They could have done much much better. I guess they still wanted to compete this year, but hey gotta look at this realistically here

Source: Brewers trade Lee to Rangers

By Keith Law



The Milwaukee Brewers are trading slugger Carlos Lee to the Texas Rangers as part of a multi-player deal, ESPN.com learned Friday.


The Brewers are sending Lee, minor-league outfield prospect Nelson Cruz and a player to be named later to the Rangers for relief pitcher Francisco Cordero and outfielders Kevin Mench and Laynce Nix.


Both teams are checking for any medical issues before consummating the deal.

I don't see anything on MLB.com on it. If it is true, that's a great deal for the Brewers.


to milwaukee:

Cordero 7-4 4.81 ERA

mench: .284 12 HR 50 RBI

Nix (AAA): .269 10 HR 55 RBI


to texas

Lee : .286 28 HR 81 RBI

Cruz (AAA): .302 20 HR 73 RBI

I don't think it was such a great deal for the Brewers.


By dealing him, they're really giving up on this season anyway, might as well have gotten John Danks and just called it a day. I'm not a huge fan of three lesser big leaguers for one very good big leaguer, unless you're the team acquiring the big one.
