Carlos Lee Has Spoken To Marlins About 2013 Return

Recommended Posts

By Mike Axisa [August 9 at 6:57pm CST]
The Marlins had a deal in place to send Carlos Lee to the Yankees before the trade deadline, but the first baseman invoked his no-trade clause for the second time this season. Despite that, Lee told Clark Spencer of The Miami Herald that he is happy in Miami and hopes to return to the team in 2013.
“I like this team,” said Lee. “I don’t know what their plans are, but I like it here.”
Spencer hears the Lee's representatives at Wasserman Media Group have already spoke to the club about coming back next season, though they would like to use Logan Morrison at first base.
The 36-year-old Lee has hit .301/.398/.369 with one homer and more walks (17) than strikeouts (13) in 123 plate appearances since being acquired from the Astros. He is making $18.5MM this summer, the final year of the six-year, $100MM contract he signed with Houston prior to 2007.



We better not put LoMo in the OF next year.

I actually like this.


Strangely enough, I do too. If we're gonna move Bonifacio to 2B for next season, and we want to starting Ruggiano in CF given the season he's had (and it seems like the Marlins may be leaning to starting him), then it oddly makes sense to bring Lee back at 1B. We're not going to find gold in free agency at the 1B and LF positions, and we could do a lot worse than signing Carlos Lee to a $5 million 1 year deal, so why the hell not?

We've been pushing LoMo's move to 1B since 2010 (where he should play). I think the Marlins front office gets a nice laugh trying to watch Morrison play left field every season.

To quote Dr Beinfest:

"Carlos, please leave"

"No."

"Please Carlos, we don't want you."

"No. Sign me."

"No."

"Sign me."

"Go away."

"Sign me."

I mean it would be one thing if lee wasn't doing much but his bat has been great. Not slugging much but he's the exact gap hitter who drives in runs that we've always needed. But yes I do not like loom in left.
