Not real thrilled about sending Nelson Cruz along in the deal, but it appears Lee wasn't going to re-sign in Milwaukee. He rejected a 4 yr/$48 million deal last night. While that might be a low offer, it seems the Brewers needed to make the move.

Wow. If this one-sided deal is the best offer Milwaukee claims to have been given... then the GM of the Rangers should be paraded around town for at least one day.

Getting Lee to sign an extension will clearly be a priority. But getting Cruz as part of the deal... that's almost worth making the deal on its own. Texas just made a huge step toward securing their future's offense by acquiring Cruz.

As a Twins and Yankees fan, I say: DAMMIT!



Take the plunge. Step into liquid.

You're a Twins AND a Yankee fan? Boy, there are just about the two most polar opposite run franchises out there.



Wow, that is graphic.

What do you think the Oakland and Anaheim fans are saying? Texas is a lot closer to them than the Twins and Yanks. Lee is more than likely to turn the tide in the AL West race.

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

Nah, something tells me the Rangers still won't pull off a playoff appearance.

And F*CK F*CK F*CK is my reaction to "El Caballo" leaving the Brew Crew. Hell, I thought he wanted to re-sign...guess not.

Man, it's just like the Selig days...come trade time, send off your big guns and your best prospects for...not much.

Ye Gods. Has Packer training camp started yet? ('Cause if so, I'm late...)

What shocks me about this move more than anything is that, while not among the top teams, the Brewers aren't THAT far out of the wild card chase. If they pull a run like Atlanta has, I could have pictured them stealing the wild card, especially now that Ben Sheets is back. But who knows what the rationale is here? Maybe Kevin Mench will become a superstar in Milwaukee.

I was hoping Lee would sign with Minnesota or the Bombers - just to keep him away from the BoSox and Angels. So in hindsight... color me very happy with this trade!
